Emma Walker, Dark sublime. Oil and mixed media on carved board, 146 x 178cm. Courtesy: the artist and Arthouse Gallery, Sydney.
In The Dark Sublime, Emma Walker takes a poetic imagining to nature’s world of interconnectivity that exists underground and on the forest floor. Walker’s new work makes reference to this underground intelligence. It evokes worlds of relationship, exchange and even love existing in the soil.
The paintings contain electric webs inspired by mycelium, tree roots and the subterranean movements of water. These networks branch out, their tentacles searching for and connecting forms.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Friday 8 November 2019
