Emma Ainsley


An artist based in Orkney.  My practice explores being alive, embodied and gendered.  Through my work I seek meaningful ways to inhabit the world, discovering meanings in the spaces in between things, people and places.  I seek to make sense of things.  I celebrate my fluid and shifting identity as a woman and maintain a dancing on the boundaries, a making and re-making of identity.  Embracing the weight of being with a light heart, playfulness threads through my work, with references to childhood games, dressing-up and pretending.  I studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design 1994-98.
