Emily White now lives in Philadelphia and works for the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program. ARTIST STATEMENT // I am drawn to the relationship between the animal and its changing environment. The rise of industry and technology have altered our native landscapes and redefined the relationships forged between humans and animals. My paintings are paired with objects that are distinctly human, illustrating the bond of the animal’s life with our own. My sculpted animals are realistic and anatomically correct. I construct them with materials and techniques that have historical and cultural significance, using the medium and form to demonstrate the source of impact to the animal’s life. I leave the play between the materials and subject open to interpretation, inviting audiences to reflect on the consequences of human industry and innovation on our natural world, and our relationship to it.
