About Emilie Pugh:
Emilie Pugh (b.1988) is a young emerging artist who lives and works in London. Her work is guided by an interest in the interconnectivity of all living things. It draws on systems of belief from the spiritual to the scientific, the micro and the macro structures of life and the conflicting and confluent universal forces that govern them. She studied at the Byam Shaw School of Art and The Ruskin School of Fine Art and Drawing at Oxford University. Having lived in Berlin for a year following a 6 month residency at Aterlierhaus Mengerzeile, she is now back in London.
Through drawing, burning, moving 3D installation and light work, she investigates the invisible currents that permeate our everyday existence. Time, breath, pulse, energy pathways, psychological cartographies; those things which are felt or heard rather then seen.
‘Everything is in flux, evolving, growing dying and dissolving in a perpetual cycle. I am compelled by the tensions that exist between the transient and the permanent; between form and the void, and what is material and immaterial.’
