ABOUT ME & MY STORY

 

EMMA KENNEDY

I began using collage to cope with situations and feelings that distressed me. I tend to make sense of my emotions by using art. That is why I deeply value art as a therapy. I think my work, at its core, is honest and raw. The vulnerability and honesty that I share is , I believe, what resonates with people the most. I deeply value this. I think Katie Ingegneri, of Houseshow Magazine, sums up my collage work best in this interview from August 2018:

“I’ve always loved seeing collage work by various artists, but Emma’s immediately grabbed me as she combined retro imagery with powerful, timeless narratives relating to gender, sexuality, feminism, and the timeless concerns of what it means to be a woman, whether in 1940 or 2018. She forces the viewer to confront sexism and find uncomfortable resonance in the many forms it continues to take.”
