Emily Carrington MA Fine Art
Emily Carrington takes strong influence from the outdoor environment to develop key themes in her practice. Using digital photography as a key starting point, the artist aims to develop and refine works through a series of vigorous processes. Currently, themes of brutalism and architecture have influenced her practice so far, with a particular focus on 20th century social housing. The artist predominately works to a large scale, with the intention to give the works a sense of ‘presence’ in a space. This choice runs throughout her practice, and is a reflection on the influences and impacts the outdoor environment gives to the artist and her practice. In her practice, the artist engages with a body of relevant materials to develop to explore themes of form, tension, ‘non-place’ and stigmatisation. More recently, she has begun to source and use materials that hold a direct relationship with the subject matter and the key influences that underpin her practice.
