Emma Cousin & Milly Peck @ Tintype Gallery
18 January 2017 - 18 February 2017
Mudhook a presentation of two emerging artists, Emma Cousin and Milly Peck. Emma Cousin walks the line between the serious and the humorous – and, indeed, legs are her vehicle. “I currently use legs as a unit, a sign, a representation, a pun and an architectural element to build, make pattern or compose space with. The leg stands in for the human.” Cousin’s practice is rooted in an interest in the human condition, visual semiotics, the history of painting and the material readability of paint itself. Her paintings and works on paper oscillate between the figurative and the geometric; a playful and exuberant energy communicated with colour and form. Encompassing drawing, collage and sculpture, Milly Peck explores the area between flat image and three- dimensional object. “The work tussles with trying to function as both a flat, pictorial image and a three- dimensional, scenographic landscape adopting a dumb, prop-like quality in the process.”
