Emma Pattenden: Monuments

Using delicate watercolour and intricate mark-making techniques, this Melbourne artist and designer invites the viewer to experience the grandeur and subtlety of the Australian landscape. Emma Pattenden’s meticulously crafted works that skilfully capture rock formations found across various regions of Australia encourage a contemplative and meditative visual experience, with the aim to foster a deeper connection with the natural world. Pattenden comments on her practice: “The lines, colours, shapes and forms that come through my hand, are instilled with the movement, smell, texture, and taste of the experience.”
