EM_Artist

Emily McGuire works with silk screens, words, paint, drawings, concretes and the resonosphere. Her work draws in scientists, medicos, old souls, business people…… and people in pursuit of a brave exploration, be it art, health or business related.

Em’s background in materials research + architecture inform her practice and interest in space, sound, materials and the body. She is building an onyx and quartz lined sound sphere – the resonosphere – where people step inside and experience a sensory vibration on the body.  

 

She has long held an interest in the connection between art + science + health and holds a University of Melbourne Post-Grad Research Masters on the design and CO2 emission attributes of geopolymer concrete. Em is currently prototyping + fabricating early stage sculptural builds for the resonosphere in the magic of the West Australian Goldfields desert.

 

Em believes art holds vital qualities; an ability to connect people; speak truths, tell stories; and that experiencing art offers people a dimension to step into and more fully resonate in their own frequency, and realise its’ transformative power.

 

Em loves collaboration with other artists, scientists and writers; and lives in Fremantle Western Australia with her family, with many kin East coast. Em is a film + book hound, keen traveller, scaravelli yoga + meditation practitioner, and is partial to wild beaches, botany, cold surf, hot bath under full moon + fire, pencil and paper, laphroaig, red dogs and hearing people’s powerful stories.
