Emily Connor Trace-making II

Sat, September 9, 2023 - Sun, November 26, 2023

Emily Connor’s eclectic mix of work uses drawing, painting, printing and sculpture as a means to respond to everyday emotions and experiences.

Connor’s work focuses on how she encounters and documents experiences. Her sketches and words stimulate further translations in the studio; so that she feels immersed in the marks that she makes.

She refers to this process as ‘Trace-making’; a concept that she has been building on since 2016, after she received a distinction for her MA in Fine Art from the University of Lincoln.

Connor has since been developing a more expressive way of ‘trace-making’, often working on a large scale so that she can bring more physical energy into a piece. She will work with a large piece for some time, responding with new work in what she considers a repetitive, and sometimes obsessive, re-tracing of her own mark-making.

Emily Connor has been a Studio Artist at The Ropewalk since 2015, taking part in Open Studio events yearly.

Since 2018, Connor has worked as a Secondary School Art and Design Teacher, sharing her passion and experience with the next generation of creatives.
