Emma Talbot’s work explores visual autobiography in a truly unique way. Through drawing, painting, animation, and three-dimensional making, she articulates internal narratives as visual poems or associative ruminations, based on her own experience, memories, and psychological projections. Incorporating her own writing, often informed by literary and poetic sources, Talbot combines painted text, figurative depiction, mark-making, and pattern to shift the registers and readings of her work between the symbolic and the everyday. The imagery in her work is direct and hand-drawn, resulting in immediate, open, inventive representations of what is seen in the mind’s eye.
