Emma Fielden makes artworks to explore ideas spanning the infinite and the infinitesimal, the largest astronomical structures and the smallest constituents of matter, the unseen forces of the universe and our place in it.
Initially trained in the discipline of classical music, then jewellery and hand engraving, Emma’s background has instilled in her a fixation with minute details and repetitive processes. Her sensitive approach to materials is apparent across her drawing, sculpture, video and installation-based practice, which saw her selected as a finalist in the 2017 NSW Visual Arts Emerging Fellowship and as the 2018 Australian representative at the Art Omi residency in New York.
