Emily Martin -- New Drawings
Art Opening Friday, August 3rd at 7 pm
July 18 - October 18, 2018
I find that through the act of drawing I am able to pursue fluidity, to experience the spontaneity of line, shape, and color, to move at my own pace. These drawings came to be about finding a sense of balance, a place where things feel right and unfold slowly. Through variations in hardness and softness of lines, juxtaposing sharp and smooth shapes, and working with negative and positive space I worked toward this sense of equilibrium in hopes that the result would bring some sense of peace.
Emily Martin is a southern New Jersey native living in Providence, RI. She studied photography as an undergraduate at Stockton College and has since worked in the mediums of photography, design, craft, textile, and writing in her personal creative practice.
