Emily Mae Smith: “Avalon”

Art

New York-based artist Emily Mae Smith practice in painting has developed persistently and distinctively in the past 20 years. Encompassing a wide range of stylistic references in the history of Western painting, such as Symbolism, Surrealism, Pop art, as well as popular and commercial arts, Emily creates a visually unique and conceptually sophisticated imageries in which her avatar, a broomstick figure, continually transforms across the canvases to address contemporary subjects including gender, sexuality, capitalism and violence. For her Tokyo exhibition entitled Avalon, Emily will present a series of new paintings which highlight her continuous interest in mythology, Feminism, and its longstanding relation to the history of painting.
