New painting

I started a new painting. I love starting something new. It’s completely exhilarating. I love solving visual problems. it’s the finishing of a painting that isn’t as fun. Knowing when to add more paint and when to stop is a delicate balance.

This painting is NOT finished. I also love to paint shiny things. My daughter and I like to joke about it. It’s nice to paint without being serious. Art progress is a process and that process is obsessively fun.

I’ve also been tackling my reading list for my MFA. Love John Berger’s Ways of Seeing. This text has given me so many insights. I plan to use the text to help me teach my first Visual Art I class this fall.

Thank you for following along with me in my art journey.

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.
