About the work
This is a study for a sculpture I am currently working on. I was experimenting with ways to convey a three-dimensional cube structure using minimal grey shades, trying to capture a graphic surface combined with a level of faintness in the pencil marks when highlighting the form and depth of field.
About the artist:
Emily Power lives and works in London. Graduated from BA Fine Art, Middlesex University (2003).
Power makes work using found and collected materials, often adopting a basic set of mathematical rules to work with, resulting in scaled up sculptures of manufactured objects to create a sense of a fabricated silent world. There are habitually repetitive elements within the works’ structure and surface features. She is experimenting with ways to offset sculptural objects against one another and is also reincorporating text into certain new works.
Selected installations include Power’s largest scale artwork to date, a wallpaper installation entitled You, continuing, William Morris Gallery, London (2005). Selected group exhibitions include Modern Finance, Thames-Side Studios Gallery, London (2019).
