Emily de Vall Dickinson

I invent creatures never seen before, entities that appear repulsive, yet own an inherent sense of mystery about them.

This creates an impulsion in the viewer to touch and inspect; challenging audiences to consider what they are viewing.

The work is foreign yet familiar, the skin and hair is humanistic yet disparity lies in their man-made creation.

I work with wood, chicken wire, latex and wool, the combination of which provides a plethora of textures, fusing the endearing with macabre.
