Emily in her studio
EMILY McGUIRE

Emily McGuire is a Perth based practicing artist who expresses her interest in space, sound, materials and the body using her skills in drawing, painting, silk screens, text and mixed media. Material research and architecture inform her practice. 

Emily believes art holds vital qualities: the ability to tell stories, connect people and speak truths. Experiencing art allows people to resonate fully in their own frequencies.

Her long held interest in the connection between art, science and health is informed by her University of Melbourne Post Grad focus on the CO2 emission attributes of geopolymer concrete. The three dimensional aspect of her art involves building a sound sphere she calls The Resonosphere that people can step inside to experience sensory vibrations through their bodies.She aims to position this finished interactive sculpture in the desert of the West Australian Goldfields.

Emily invites collaboration with other artists, scientists and writers.
