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.
