Emily Babette

Drawing, Painting, Paper-cut

A contemporary figurative artist who is dedicated to working with traditional media such as oil painting and drawing, yet seeks to push the content of her images by incorporating less traditional and more “crafty” medias such as collage, paper-cut, and Straw Marquetry. The figures in her work are chosen due to their camaraderie with the artist and their mutual dedication to their expression of subculture. Her ongoing ambition lies in discovering what a subculture reveals about an individual in relation to society, and how fashion becomes costume, gesture becomes performance, and the gaze becomes a window into a tailored psyche.
