Alongside silkily draped sculptures, Emery will present a series of his recent oil paintings, which expand his enquiry into the representation of animals, as well as showcasing his highly attuned use of 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.
