Emerson has constructed Maquette’s theatre set made using beads, shells, buttons, natural materials, images, all repurposed from her collections, as a self professed magpie and hoarder. These sets are photographed in the artists studio then digitally combined with the model and horse also photographed by the artist. The photopolymer etching process unifies the image leaving the boundaries blurred between the real and the fabricated, the characters cast adrift in these constructed spaces.
This artist produces her prints in small editions, the etching plate is 'inked up' individually before going through the press, once printed and left to dry each edition has been hand painted with water colour and bronze powder making these unique and intriguing prints both collectable and a real talking point.
