Meet the artist – Emma Veares
Foundation Art and Design, Central Saint Martins, 2014
Emma is a practicing Fine Artist and regularly exhibits in London and Cambridge. She creates framed silk chiffon photographic prints, which are suspended over identical photographic prints on paper. The effect is 3D and almost holographic.
Emma is interested in light and its limits, and the extent to which it can be brought into a space using a still image. She captures transient moments and tries to recreate some of the elusive qualities that are sometimes lost through standard photography. Her work aims to convey the movement that happens during a moment of time in a still image.
What was the inspiration behind the piece(s) in not just a shop?
Times Three originated from a photograph taken during my Undergraduate Degree at the University of Cambridge. I worked with the source material in an attempt to capture something of what that period of my life looked and felt like. It’s a still image, but I want it to move, change and feel alive.
