Art conversations

Today was a great day for art conversations. I had a conference call about my summer residency. My questions were answered. The call also stimulated some questions for the next residency conversation. I also began a new painting.

Battered doll with toy iron, work in progress.

The piece is in the earliest stage. I simply blocked in the large areas of color. I didn’t work on the eyes or the details of the cord for the toy iron. I will let this under painting dry for a day or so and then go in and add detail to the hair, eyes, etc.

I think I will continue painting dolls for a bit as painting them is good practice for painting portraits. Thank you for reading about my painting process.

My best,
Emily Warren

The work is inspired by an engagement with play and making peace with uncertainty. I work experimentally, using a digital video to explore painting. I use sound and moving images in non-traditional ways to reverse expectations of horror and comedy. I am drawn to the whimsical nature of self-discovery. I construct repeating narratives, often depicting varying scenarios of serenity, silliness, and reflection.
