Emma Walker: Distillations

Emma Walker’s hybrid creations merge painting and sculpture through her seemingly meditative processes of carving, sanding, layering, grinding, glazing, dripping and scratching into plywood. Walker’s unhurried and intuitive approach nurtures the artist’s engagement with the natural world and ‘the ineffable nature of that which lies beneath the surface of appearances,’ and in turn, evoke the sensitivities of feeling and memory, atmosphere and sense of place. Her practice also incorporates video work in which she collaborates with digital media artist Grayson Cooke.
