Emilie Syme-Lamont b.1990
Emilie is an artist currently based out of Sydney and recent graduate of an MFA in Drawing at The National Art School, Sydney.
Emilie's interest lies in the fallible and obscured areas of memory that indicate how past material can influence present and future narratives of the self.
Exploring tensions between painting and installed spaces with objects that are found and made to express moments of intentional ambiguity, strange familiarity and poetic dislocation.
Using predominantly painting as a medium to translate cultural references such as the family photograph and analogue home video into an expressive and painterly surface, thus contrasting the individual with familiar image.
Emilie is represented by M Contemporary Gallery in Sydney and her work belongs in private collections across Australia and the National Art School Archives.
