'Bold', 'assured' and 'sensual' are all words that describe the artwork of Emily Crockford. Whether sculpting fantastical royal characters or painting familiar still-life scenes, Emily’s artworks balance a series of seeming opposites. Blocks of strong colour sit alongside areas of intricate pattern. An energy of lyrical movement exists simultaneously with a sense of contemplation. Emily’s ‘Queen of Hearts’ stares out poignantly whilst seeming in mid flight.
Emily loves to engage with other artists and share skills. She loves adventuring to new art studios. In 2013 Emily worked at UNSW Art & Design as a guest artist in Cicada Press, and in 2014 undertook a residency at Koskela. In 2015 Emily was an exhibiting artist in the Underbelly Arts Festival on Cockatoo Island, Sydney.
Emily explains ‘I like painting on fabrics and working with guest artists. I like my own techniques, playing and experimenting with different ideas. I want to be a great artist, and experiment.’
Work by Emily is held in various collections including Artbank.
