Emma McLay explores a woman’s reproductive journey through the medical system and the ramifications of that journey on the body and the self. The destruction and restoration of the feminine is put on decadent visual display. With assemblages made of an intriguing mix of painting, sculpture and fibre arts, the experience is an opulent challenge for the emotions.
McLay completed her BFA in 2008 and her MFA in 2011, both at the University of Alberta. Her research within the artistic field centres around blurring lines and definitions, striving to create work that occupies many spaces and categories at once: sculpture, painting and installation; personal and analytical; self-contained and enveloping. She is currently living on Pender Island, B.C., with her husband and young daughter.
