Artist based in London UK

Creating upon self experience as the conceptual basis, Emma explores existence and consciousness with multiple mediums within art, including sculpture, installation and performance.

Specializing in sculpture and installation, Emma is recently working with the material of thread and fabric on a larger scale, which audience may able to involve in the works. Observing the relationship between place, space and oneself, in the series of fabric installation, Emma changes the form and the structure of the works following the spaces with different interior structures. Base on the same series of medium and technique, the meaning of the body of work may be different along with the difference of location.

Being familiar working with fabric and other soft materials, Emma usually constructs the work into an abstract, deformed form, creating the main body as a human being, an individual, which response to the artist’s concept of creating a body and a system that containing the personal consciousness- the process of development could be seen as a proof, or the trace of the artist’s existence, base on the idea of remaining oneself.
