ARTIST STATEMENT

Emma O’Hara’s screen prints captures a perception of deconstructed landscapes and urban cityscapes. O’Hara celebrates common objects and environments from everyday life. The artist believes there is no higher hierarchy of culture and her inspiration is borrowed from any source of the mundane influenced by the pop culture movement. Emma uses colour to highlight the disparity between structural form and the reimagined human intervention.
