Research

I am currently reading the Subject of Semiotics by Kaja Silverman. For my studio work, I am trying to pick apart my boundaries. I want to shine a light on the darkest parts of my personality. It’s not hard. My cognitive process can go to a dark place easily. Silverman writes about the problems between what we are thinking and how we express that in language. Through visual language, I share the emotion involved in picking apart these dark shadows in my studio process. 

Full circle, I am making a short as my studio project this semester. I never, ever thought I would return to filmmaking after leaving New York. But here I sit piecing together a storyboard in Final Cut Pro. I’ve spent hours splicing and dicing audio tracks, and I LOVE every minute of it.

I am looking forward to sharing something besides still life this winter.

Thank you so much for following my art journey.

my best,

Emmy

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.
