For the last exhibition at our temporary space in New York, Arcadia Missa is pleased to present a solo exhibition of works by Emma Talbot.
British artist Emma Talbot is known primarily for her work as a painter who reformats biography and autobiography into memory and fantasy. She’s an artist who pushes the medium of painting in a variety of directions — taking on methods of storytelling that are perhaps more closely linked to the function of historical or even religious artworks, as well as print media, as orators.
The distinct materiality as well as the use of text are key features of the work, allowing us into personal facets of the artist’s psyche that are laid open in an act of confession, commenting on histories of labour, of gender roles, of environments, and exploring the space of the subconscious.
Accompanying the exhibition will be a text by Tess Edmonson.
