How have I never posted about Femke Hiemstra in all the years I’ve been following her work?
She’s one of the greatest in pop surrealism’s large pool of imaginative, “anthropomorphizers” (that’s absolutely not a word, but it should be). Femke has a background in illustration, so we encounter typography and other hints of illustrative technique mixed with beautifully executed fine art.
She doesn’t use social networking, which find incredible in this day and age (I’m notoriously awful at social networking. I cannot keep up with it because my head is always in other things. I can’t help but admire those willing to ignore the phenomenon completely).
You can read a good interview over at WOWxWOW.
