Brunswick Street Gallery 40×40 2016, Open Call Art Prize


“Killing on the Spree”, 2015, 2 Layer Lino Print on cotton rag, 37.3cmx37.5cm (framed)

The Brunswick Street Gallery 40×40 Open Call Art Prize opens tonight, a group show with over 940 art works over 3 floors. Artworks have a maximum size 40x40x40cm inc frame with a brief for artists to use any medium they choose.

Emma’s entry “Killing on the Spree” is a reflection of time she spent in Berlin in 2014. A translation of a drawing she created there, an image of a dead white swan, nestled in a pile of late autumn leaves on the banks of the spree river, opposite the abandoned “Spreepark“. Its underlying narrative, read anticlockwise from the top left, is a story of decay and rebirth, the ruby being a symbol of the vibrance of the spirit of things past.

Her work is on display until late January (note: BSG is closed over the Christmas period).
