    Biography

    Emma Coop is a British Artist who lives and works in London. She holds an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art and Design.

    Drawing is the main focus of Emma Coop’s practice. Her drawings are quiet and invite the viewer to look and to be immersed. Repeatedly making drawings of the sea, Emma’s work has a connection with late eighteenth and early nineteenth century Romanticism, whereby a landscape could summon a visual representation of an emotional state.

    Emma’s work examines the nature of ‘being lost in a moment’ or, by contrast, the lengthy unraveling of time. The drawings created depict split second moments, yet take considerable time to make. There is an element of performance and endurance that connects her to conceptual practices of the 1980s whereby the body is implicated but not present. Her work slowly dwells on the assimilation of detail to the point whereby the process of drawing becomes an mesmeric act in itself. The resulting artworks express this laboured process along with it’s inherent futility and desire.
