white wood frame with glass
Emma delicately cuts images, especially trees, from a medium like felt or paper and pins them minutely to their chosen background, raised ethereally from the surface, forming beautiful shadows and layers.
‘’Colour, texture and light all inspire, delight and inform me. I look for the journey of my materials particularly paper- its source, it’s evolution to a finished piece and its eventual destination. It’s a silent language usually revealing itself beyond completion. I like to feel fragility and a quiet change between colour and texture. I want light to filter and cast shadows over each work gently forming new life, movement and dimension.
I watch for the space in each piece, how the eye travels around the image, how light on the pins pushes the layers forward. I listen to what each piece asks for.’’
