Emma Talbot is an artist based in London. Her work is an act of reconstruction. She makes drawn and painted images of memories and thoughts directly onto paper and canvas. These are grouped together to reveal psychological patterns. She describes her work as ‘an attempt to get close to the way connections are formed between disparate things, building our experience of the world’. The work includes pictures, motifs and text - from her own writing as well as song lyrics, poems, and the writing of others.
Selected recent exhibitions include: Painting Past and Present, The Laing, Newcastle; Drawing Now, Carousel De Louvre, Paris; Bad Objects, Little Deaths, Transition Gallery, London; The John Moores Painting Prize, The Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool; Me and My Shadow, Kate MacGarry, London; TOLD, Hales Gallery, London; You Would Cry Too If It Happened To You, Kusseneers Gallery, Antwerp; The Solo Project, Basel (Kusseneers Gallery); The Life Of The Mind, The New Art Gallery Walsall.
Emma Talbot's work will be featured in two Thames and Hudson publications: ‘100 Painters of Tomorrow’ and ‘Drawing People’. Her work is in the Saatchi Collection and The David Roberts Collection.
