Artist Emily McIlroy joins us to discuss her work, life, and philosophy. She will also discuss her process, and how these works inspired by her artist residency in Glacier National Park will come together in an artist’s book exploring the connections between inner and outer wilderness.
LIGHT INSIDE THE BODY by Emily McIlroy
Each piece in this series points to the enmeshment and permeability of environments, minds, and bodies. Emerging from a process of layering and often subtraction, they attempt to bridge the enduring with the temporal, the visible with the invisible, the prosaic with the poetic. Looking simultaneously both outward and inward, they connect the realm of wilderness — its beauty, violence, power, and fragility — with our own internal territories.
