The practice of JADA award-winning artist Emma Walker consistently and evocatively engages with the natural world. An explorer at heart, Walker has informed her artistic vernacular through extensive travel and an innate desire to absorb and engage with the world around her. In this way, poetry, philosophy, photography and music are all vital components of her process. The artist’s abstracted landscapes are multi-layered, being as much about the medium of paint and the process of painting as with an experience of the Australian environment and the natural world. They explore the connections between landscape, memory and the subconscious through texture and the interplay of light and dark, creating a dreamlike dimension that opens itself up to multiple meanings.
