Between stars, between stones
Dominik Mersch Gallery Sydney 1 to 24 November, 2018
Emma Fielden’s background in classical music and jewellery with a focus on hand engraving and mark making, has instilled in her a fixation with minute details and repetitive actions. Her practice, which encompasses drawing, sculpture and installation, constitutes minimal monochromatic works that explore ideas of the infinite and the infinitesimal – as both metaphysical and mathematical concepts, from the largest astronomical structures and the smallest constituents of matter. They are informed by philosophical concerns, science and art history; balanced by an intuitive and meditative working process.
