Only the strongest / no stars above
Only the strongest / no stars above meditates on love, loneliness, ritual repetitiveness, and the ambient dread of the past two years.
Tāmaki Makaurau-based multidisciplinary artist Emily Brown presents a new suite of prints on stretched silk that incorporate spiritual iconography, classical myth and love rituals.
The works are an exploration of both loose collage and world-building, with a visual language built on soft fragments of bodies, animals and objects that collapse onto one another and create narratives within the space.
