'In contrast, by Pauline of the Netherlands also deserves special mention. As the terminal side of an airport runway, the subject is seemingly banal. Yet the finely woven articulation is exquisitely refined in color and resolution, with delicate patterned gradation within the embroidery, making no small reference to the tall skies and surgical details of more traditional Dutch landscape. It is strangely reticent, yet very stirring. It rewards close scrutiny as it wavers among abstraction and representation, tactility and visual depth. In this work and the show as a whole fiber arts are as vibrant and versatile as the curators assert. They weigh in on any issue of contemporary artistic expression, with medium specific materials and traditions, all while maintaining their richness'.
