Emmalyn Hawthorne is an artist and writer. A process of collage investigating negative space has brought her to an expanded practice using new media processes. She is interested in how unusual juxtapositions and semantic multitudes in life foreground our need to make meaning.
“There is something sad but also really human and honest in trying to narrativise the incongruous.”
Since completing honours at the Queensland College of Art in 2018, Emmalyn’s work has been included in duo and group shows within Brisbane (Meanjin) and her writing has been published locally by zines and for exhibitions. She is currently one of Outer Space Brisbane’s studio artists.
