Emerson’s Dark Games & Other Little Things will be extending its run at Mulberry Art Studios through the month of December!
B. Emerson, a West Reading artist with a focus in detailed graphite pencil and paper illustrations depicting a variety of themes, will be continuing the exhibition of her newest collection, Dark Games & Other Little Things, at Mulberry Art Studios into December. A First Friday Reception will be held from 5pm-9pm on December 2.
Since a young age, making art has always been a way of life. After college, working in other industries and starting a family, B. Emerson rediscovered her love for drawing after the death of her spouse. Graphite pencil and paper is Emerson’s preferred medium to express deep emotion and movement for her dark dream like themes. In earlier works, the inspiration of wood grain was partially used in paintings but not in its entirety as it is today. It has now become a signature style in identifying the work of B. Emerson.
Each piece has depth of movement through perspective, rich tonality, and contrast with usage of black and white with the incorporation of wood grain. B.Emerson’s inspiration comes from a deeply rooted fascination with nature, people, life events, as well as all things visually tantalizing. It is simple, contrasting, eye-catching at the same time yet mesmerizing for the audience.
This year’s exhibit will showcase a variety of work through the last two years, Including 10 new pieces. A mix of all series and themes including Emerson’s exploration of playing cards with incorporation of wood grain. All of Emerson’s work are on a small to large scale, making it easy for visual —yet a craving for more.
Inspiration for this year’s exhibit extends from previous shows with Dark Grain, Dark Hearts & Every Little Dark Thing. Graphite pencil drawings with new whimsical wood grain piece, which stem from other works, have been made more elaborate and detailed for the audience viewing pleasure.
