An old black and white photograph serves as the background for this work of art, but it is enlarged to such a degree that it is abstracted and the photographic grain becomes the most prevalent feature. A growth of petals extends from a central point, reaching out to more distant areas of the brain. This piece focuses on themes of memory, nostalgia and interpretation.
Emily Carriere resides in Toronto where she works as an artist.
She creates intricate cut-out vinyl and acrylic artworks. Carriere works intuitively, letting the process take over, which allows the work to reveal itself through the natural progression of experimentation. The results are abstract images which can be interpreted in an endless variety of ways depending on the viewers’ experiences, memories and histories.
