About

Emmalyn Hawthorne is a Meanjin/Brisbane based 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."

Emmalyn's work has been exhibited within Meanjin/Brisbane, Naarm/Melbourne, Lutruwita/Tasmania and Aotearoa/New Zealand. Project highlights include: Orrery, a website produced with Hannah Jenkins for KINGS Artist-Run; Astrolabe, a solo show at TCB in Naarm; and, Kerning, a group show about text that travelled to both Naarm and Aotearoa. Recently, a site-specific sculpture developed for the University of Tasmania's new Inveresk Library in Launceston was shown there. Emmalyn holds a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) from the Queensland College of Art and Design.
