“My works search for connecting threads between our inner emotions and the environment in which we live. I combine invisible emotional and physical experiences with visually recognizable shapes of plant life and human anatomy to create new plants, organisms and shapes that express ideas that cannot be written or spoken. With the sensitive application of tactile materials, and experimentation with historical techniques I endeavor to express a new human physical awareness as well as sexuality, femininity, social harmony and domesticity in my work.”
Ema has held solo exhibitions in Japan, Korea and has been selected for numerous international group exhibitions. Currently has a studio practice in Melbourne, Australia.
