Nike Schroeder, German fiber artist originally from Hamburg, after graduating in Art Therapy/Fine Arts from the University of Applied Sciences in Ottersberg, Germany, moved to Los Angeles where she currently lives and works.
Schroeder’s works range from painting to porcelain sculpture, to machine-embroidered canvases in which the stitch is an extension of the brush. It also includes ethereal tapestries with multiple suspended threads and subtle color gradations that draw inspiration from her inner world, from emotions and feelings that the artist translates into color combinations, rendering her works intimate and meditative, evocative of stillness, lightness and serenity.
Schroeder’s work has been shown in group and solo exhibitions at the Walter Maciel Gallery in Los Angeles, the Jack Fischer Gallery in San Francisco, the Museum of Art and History in Lancaster, CA, in Germany and Italy, to name a few. She has received commissions for numerous private collections and for Germany’s largest textile fair, Munich Fabric Start. Schroeder participated as an artist-in-residence at the Izyur Festival in Kudymkar, Russia.
