Emma Talbot (b. 1969) lives and works in London. Her work explores autobiography. Through drawing, painting, installation and sculpture, she articulates memories and psychological states as visual poems or associative ruminations. The imagery in the work is direct and hand-drawn, resulting in immediate, open, inventive representations of what is seen in the mind’s eye. Incorporating her own writing and references and quotes from other sources, Talbot combines text, image and pattern to evoke the symbolic, the metaphoric and the everyday. The work explores the personal as political, social politics, gender, the ‘natural world’, our intimacy with technology and language.
