“I believe art has the power to connect people. It’s about working with materials, nature, sound and space. It involves technology and exploration too… but most of all the heart.”
sound. materials. space.
Emily McGuire is a multi-disciplinary artist investigating the parallels of art, life, death and transformation in her current death series.
Her careful arrangement of contrasting elements and materials – often incorporating painting, textiles, and objects – involves a practical and poetic approach to her work, which often ties in to what it means to be human and to connect. Emily’s background in architecture, specialising in silica-activated concretes, significantly informs her work.
Her recent exhibition ‘Shroud’ explores how people find beauty and power in endings and how the power of art might generate new states of being.
