Emilie Syme-Lamont b.1990
Emilie Syme-Lamont is a contemporary artist currently based out of Sydney, Australia.
Her body of work includes painting, drawing, ceramics, and more recently, sound, silicone and bookmaking.
Emilie borrows from literary and cinematic Gothic and Horror traditions. She looks to genre tropes such as haunted houses, ghost stories, “the double”, and psychologically charged spaces to inform her painting and installations.
Materials from the past; old photos, films, magazines, and bric-a-brac, are used to draw attention to obscured areas of memory and the psychological impact of culturally recurring images.
Her work expresses moments of intentional ambiguity, strange familiarity, or dreamlike interpretations of reality.
Emilie is a recent MFA in Drawing graduate from The National Art School in Sydney, and holds a BFA in Painting. She has held solo exhibitions at M contemporary in Sydney, Edwina Corlette Gallery in Brisbane and PINCE project in Budapest. Her work belongs in private collections across Australia, USA and Europe, with two works held in National Art School Archives, Sydney.
