Artist Bar

Emma Holden

In Emma Holden's work natural and manmade materials cohabit outside of their normal context questioning the fixed rules and meanings that we apply to our everyday experiences. The notion that the disposable is undesirable is binned and the honesty of her production is laid bare. Her passion for nature and the internal logic of organic structures is played out as she breathes new life into discarded and domestic materials such as Christmas trees, polystyrene and brown paper.
