Personal experiences, books and media are all sources of inspiration as well as a strong sense of community from peers and classmates in the creative field.
CONNECT WITH EMILY
Emily’s paintings explore the themes of nostalgia and memory through incorporating a collage of visual language to represent childhood memories. She depicts images and symbols of universal youthful experiences through posterised images, bright colours, stencils and freehand drawings, while utilising a playful and colourful style. The subjects in the works overlap each other to create a loose feeling, portraying a fun sketchbook style painting, embracing the vibrant theme of Nostalgia. Creating a miscellany of objects, images and drawings is the impetus of nostalgia, which can be seen in Emily’s works. Her paintings combine a sense of atmosphere and internal dialogue as well as representing emotions connected to certain memories. Both works present the ideas of Nostalgia as a means of reminiscing and finding comfort in doing so. Both works are non-confrontational, instead they invite the audience to feel relief and comfort emanating from a sense of childlike liveliness.
