Emma Fitts ‘made material, made substantial’

post-image
“Varicoloured, captivating and referential assemblages pertaining to the body are crafted by Emma Fitts. Rehabilitating histories, she takes as her subject matter well-known, local artistic and political personages such as Louise Henderson, Edith Collier, Frances Hodgkins, Olivia Spencer Bower and Marilyn Waring. Inspiration is provided by almost out-moded fashions, aged clothing patterns as well as worn bolts of cloth. Aside from these historically-informed re-visitations, Fitts also attempts to realise felt-states in configurations or block-like shapes of darkened fabrics that hover in space like the plans of half-remembered rooms.” https://melanierogergallery.com/stockroom/emma-fitts/
