Emma Scothern

Emma Scothern’s practice explores ideas of interruption, manifesting in the manipulation of image and surface. Currently, she takes inspiration from the abstraction of landscape, both through the physical disruption of the place itself and through the manipulation that occurs in the artistic reproduction of it, using the media of paint and hand embroidery. The act of stitching represents the tangible interruption of the surface, but also indicates her interest in exploring the dissonance between fine art and craft, and the perceived hierarchies formed between the two.
