Emma-Kate’s practice is built around her fascination with the forms that emerge as a function of light in her subjects. She delights in line creating shapes, the forming of an expressive and abstracted fluid geometry. Her pleasure in deeply observing the world around her translates to nuanced colour palettes full of mood and feel, as well as forms that borrow from reality but only enough to loan the meaning of the thing. The results are often somewhere between nostalgic and contemporary, hard to peg with plenty of room for a personal connection.
Emma-Kate’s native birds are limited edition 43cm pigment prints on Hahnemühle 300gsm print paper. The Good Studio also sotcks a full range of Emma-Kate’s native bird cards, perfect for framing or to complete a special gift.
