Emma Logan

Emma combines a research and process driven practice with organic mediums like clay, wool, and paper to make sculpture and installation work. The tactile nature of these chosen mediums is an important link to her areas of focus: geographic identity, land use and access, agriculture, and sensory memory. Equally as important for her work is visceral engagement with the viewer through touch, sound, smell, and taste.

Recent works have highlighted disparities in land and water access for agricultural practices, cultural appropriation of art and ideas through ancestral relationships, the overlap between community isolation and food scarcity, social pressures on the agricultural market, critique of extractive practices in relations to land use, and the sensory relationship of memory to cultural identity.
