In line with Emerson’s signature style, Moda features an elongated figure comprised in this instance by combining a model photographed in the artists studio with bird cage netting to create with playful, delicately embossed photo polymer etching. Each print is made with careful attention, it is a precise and slow printing process, after the metal etching plate is exposed and cut to size, it is inked and wiped, and the netting layered on top before it is pressed onto the paper through the printing press.
Rosie Emerson is an award winning contemporary artist from the Dorset, working almost exclusively on representing the female form. Emerson’s figures draw reference from archetypes old and new from Artemis to the modern day super model.
Inspired by her love of museums, architecture, theatre, silhouettes, shrines and rituals, she uses dramatic lighting, hand made costumes, set and prop making alongside printmaking and painting to create genre defying prints. Emerson’s current Photopolymer etchings continue to push printmaking in new directions, her monochrome portraits are delicately embossed with unusual materials; salt, netting, hair and cellophane.
Career highlights include being Artist in residence at Somerset House, Exhibitions at the RWA, Bristol and the Southbank Centre. A Finalist for the Young Masters Prize and shortlisted for the Rise Art Print Award, Emerson was also commissioned by Hackney WickED Arts Festival to create a new Guinness World record and create the world’s largest Cyanotype photograph.
Her work is widely collected and exhibited both in the UK, as well as internationally, through galleries, art fairs and museums. She has also been commissioned by brands including Sony, Triumph Underwear, Redbull, P&O Cruises, Toms, and Annoushka jewelry working with models Amber le Bon, Daisy Lowe and singer Eliza Doolittle. Her work has also been featured in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Another Magazine, The Financial Times Magazine and The Sunday Times Style Magazine.
