Troy Emery’s practice encompasses sculpture, painting, and drawing. Emery’s artwork explores the way that representations of animals can be used as decorative motifs, superficial icons for ecological issues or fetishised objects of adornment and entertainment. Disarmingly vibrant and highly tactile, his sculptures are also elusive and there is a poignance in their faceless disguises.

Emery's new series of silkily draped sculptures, expand his enquiry into the representation of animals, as well as showcasing his highly attuned use of decorative materials, colour and texture.

Emery has presented his work across Australia and internationally since 2003. He has recently held solo exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Ballarat (2019), CRAFT and as part of Dark Mofo (2018). Emery’s work is held in various private and public collections, including NGV, Artbank, City of Townsville, Goulburn Regional Art Gallery and Deakin Art Museum.

Emery is represented by Martin Browne Contemporary, Sydney.
