Visual Arts: Drawing / Sketching
In “Convergence”, traditional realism and abstraction is juxtaposed to reframe our view of the world. Drawn with meticulous detail, all the individual marks work together to give the illusion of a more whole image. Emma’s drawing practice utilizes biomorphic and curvilinear lines to create depth, drawing off the hidden intricacies in the natural world. The series seeks to visualize that abstraction is found everywhere, including the most mundane of objects. The theme draws influence from the philosophy of Lucian Freud: "The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real."

Emma Fang is an emerging multidisciplinary artist on unceded WSÁNEĆ, lək̓ʷəŋən, and Wyomilth territory. She was raised in Calgary, and is graduating with a B.F.A at the University of Victoria in British Columbia.
