More on the Sketchbook Project

Less than 2 weeks until my sketchbook is due. I hope to have it shipped to the Brooklyn Art Library before the deadline. If I am honest I will admit that I sometimes work better under pressure. I wrote a little about my choice of themes here. If you are interested in joining the sketchbook project, do it!

Here are some images of my 2018 sketchbook, A Visual Narrative of the Day We Met.

Still working on this one…it’s the spread..

I enjoyed making this sketch book. It’s a refreshing contrast to the 2017 book. I think I will continue and create another book for 2019. I look forward to the challenge of the next book.

I would love your feedback. As always thank you for reading and checking out my creative process.

My best,
Emily Warren

Remember Reflect Reform In this work, I have been exploring phenomena of memory augmentation. I experimented with reflections and cinematic images by juxtaposing photographs, paint, wood, and mylar. The direction of the work includes painting intimate, reflective, observations of augmented memories.  I began by building a cabinet of curiosities as a way to form a tableau painting and experiment with different media. Inspired by the relief paintings by artist Sally Han, I built a model of a Victorian cabinet using tenets of Darwin's theory of evolution. I painted on a variety of surfaces including wood, photographs, and adding raw lumber to the pieces. In this process, I disassembled the cabinet to give autonomy to each piece. Although I diverted from the original idea of a final installation, there was an impulse to paint larger. Adding mylar was yet another way to accentuate reflection as a part of the critical dialogue with the work. The final result offers an opportunity to remember, reflect, and reform.
