Emma Neuberg’s latest iteration of Drapes, called, simply, Drape, shows at Craft Central, in East London, until 5th February 2019, alongside a collection of large pastel drawings. The series on show is a new iteration of the works unique to the new industrial gallery space, The Forge, on the Isle of Dogs, East London.
The show is called Memory of Colour and the works grouped represent a collection of large pastel drawings and fabric prints from the period 2014 to 2018.
“Drapes is an immersive forest of 20 fabric folds patterned with brightly bold and textured foliage, bringing the outside world in. Totems to the natural world, this installation subtly breathes in the space as the geometric artworks softly flutter in the breeze and move the viewer’s eye from the artworks’ surface to their abstracted depths.” Saff Williams, Curator at Studio 7 Projects, London (2018).
The large pastel drawings show the immediacy and speed of working with spontaneous feelings and memories in order to arrive at a new form of thought. Each piece (paper and canvas) informs the next in a continuous cycle of progression, development, meaning and culture.
The exhibition is open to the public, Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, by appointment, at The Forge, Craft Central, London E14 3AE.
