Digital Print of a Photograph by Emily Dundas Oke
Drawing and Photograph by Emily Dundas Oke
Printed on a recycled A3 size paper
‘My sketchbook has become more than anything a place of play. Working between intended ideas, I explore potential connections between various concepts, intuitions, and intimate space I draw in. My artwork often involve the human body and its relationship to larger social constructs, such as photographic devices, architecture, or personal/public spaces. In my daily practice of sitting outside and sketching, I forget about any clear intention and just let whatever mess come out. I find this approach encourages more emergence in my work, and doesn’t place limitations when I go to realize the project.’
Emily is an art and philosophy student at Thompson Rivers University, in Kamloops, Canada. She participated in the summer art residency and had a collaborative exhibition with Rūta, as well as a solo exhibition at Ideas Block gallery in 2017.
This work is a part of "Source - Process" exhibition. The exhibition is about the bursts of the artists’ spirit, and creativity. It is a show about the creative mind at work. Artists, who became part of Ideas Block during this first year, will showcase their ideas-development process through the fragments of notes, sketches, unfinished works and ideas, taken from their notebooks, papers, camera films, or elsewhere. Abstract, unfinished ideas, realisations, shapeless stimuli, coming in and out of context. A peek into the artist's inner source and intent.
