Installation of 100 drawings on shelves, 65 in one piece, 35 drawings in two other installations.
Pictures From My Heart features a selection of extraordinary drawings made by Emma Talbot following the death of her husband, Paul. These drawings grew out of a desire not only for emotional honesty but also for a simplification of her working process. These drawings did not spring from some presumed year zero of the artist’s practice, There are nuances here and creative decisions, which Talbot has honed over the years through her paintings. Yet there is also a new fearlessness, the sense that we are looking at the work of an artist at an important pinnacle of her career – the point where the artist has become so embedded with the work – that life and art are no longer separate and in Talbot’s sophisticated and sure hand a truly unique new language emerges.
