Join us for a reception to meet artist, Emerald Estock who is visiting Wilmington, NC from Franklin, TN (south of Nashville) and will exhibit new woven photography including baskets and wall hangings plus photographs printed on metal. Emerald will also be in the gallery on Friday, August 4th, 6 – 9 pm.
I have always been an experiential learner with a passion for photography.
The photographic print has been my visual voice and I’ve explored multiple alternative printing processes, over the years including platinum and hand made substrates. I enjoy doing my own printing.
Creating an expressive print is both challenging and rewarding.
I began weaving as a break from photography, but soon found I wanted to bring the tactile quality of weaving to my photographs.
In my latest body of work, I am exploring the creative potential of woven images. I feel the woven texture helps engage the viewer, and draws them deeper into the image.
