Embroidered Cartoons

13th May 2022

Most of us remember the madcap silliness of cartoons, whatever age we are. The slapstick humour would bring fits of giggles to children across the ages, but Peter Frederiksen, machine embroidery artist, sees another side to his favourite cartoon moments.

Peter focuses on one moment in a cartoon and identifies the more poignant message that can be seen there. He captures these scenes, isolating them from their surroundings and infusing them with, at times, a disconcerting atmosphere. 

Peter enjoys creating tension in a scene, and hopes to address feelings of anxiety and uncertainty in these striking works of art.
