Joy is the driving force behind Emily's practice and her work aims to inspire a moment of this intangible, ephemeral feeling to exhilarate and uplift the viewer through vibrant colours, intricate pattern and playful compositions. Her artwork questions why certain objects instinctively arouse positive feelings and how we can cultivate this emotion through art. How can tangible objects be engineered with particular aesthetics to create joy?
The patterns and shapes in Emily's artworks are informed by studies of microscopic imagery, seeds, coral and flora. The final artworks are not exact replicas of natural species, but allusive hybrids.
