Emerson Tiffany

Contemporary Art BA(Hons)

I make large-scale abstract paintings and small works on paper that accumulate, forming large-scale compositions.

My methods of applying paint are consistent across different materials and scales, from minute pallet knives to large lengths of cardboard. I rehearse and repeat gestures that combine instinct and intense analysis of what I see to create visual wholeness in the work. I am interested in the non-sensical nature of non-objective abstraction, meaning my work comes from abstraction and travels back into abstraction, making sense only on its own terms.
