Views From The Boundary Layer
‘Living within the boundary layer prolongs the window of opportunity for growth.’
Robin Wall Kimmerer
This body of work has grown out of many years of walking, wild swimming, collecting and paying close attention. Often revisiting the same sites over many years, and drawing on scientific data, memory, embodied experiences and the writings of others, Emma offers her own views of the places she holds dear. Working with photography, painting, cyanotype, stitch and repurposed materials, each piece intertwines multiple stories learned through head, heart and hand. Presented here in digital form, these pieces have been re-imagined for the digital space, offering something connected to, but materially different from, the original work.
The physical work is viewable at the Gardens Gallery in Cheltenham (11-13th July) or by
appointment with the artist.
Artist talk will be available live from Zoom on 17th June. Please head to the shop to book your FREE place!
