Project Fashion Art


Pauline Schulze is a German based mixed media artist and designer. She studied International Business and has a Master in Design Professional Practice. She has founded and run her own independent fashion brand. It was these years working in fashion that set the foundation for her art which is inspired by fashion, colours, materials, shapes, and process of creation. The strong connection of two dimensions: design and art are at the core of Pauline´s art practice. Her work is characterised using different materials decontextualizing and transforming objects from fashion and interior design.


The inspiration for my artistic approach originally comes from fashion: the colours, the materials, the construction of the garments. In the design and production of the collections, I have found that the creative processes are very intense, but the designs quickly become obsolete, and that there is an incredible amount of materials left over as  remnants and, if necessary, thrown away. I then asked myself, what if I use the leftovers and create something new that anchors the past in the present moment and prioritizes longevity.

In doing so, I am guided by the idea of creating visual sanctuaries. To bring to life the desires, longings that can be expressed through the colours. Because colour is our perception of the environment and the moments we experience. It leads us to the emotions and the emotions to the memories that we associate with certain things and situations. This is an encoding process. My goal is to consciously initiate this encoding and create the luminous, balancing moments.

My paintings are constructed like garments: there are the details and components that fade into the background and such layers that are more present and immediately graspable. I work with the raw cotton fabric that I cut, paint and place in a composition on the background. Also, the fabric scraps with their different hues and textures find the use. The colours reflect the emotions that accompany me in the moment, and they connect the artwork to the whole.

My art is to give the feeling of having arrived, to pause and pay attention to what your own perception says and thus to understand in its own way how we decipher what we see.
