Emma Coulter’s work ornamental symmetrie blau blue is a finalist in the Sunshine Coast Art Prize.
ornamental symmetrie blau blue, explores the spatial relationship and organisation of geometric colour arrangements, through a precise composition inspired by a residency and site-specific work undertaken in Germany.
The juxtaposition of the reductive geometric painting paired with the custom coloured ornamental frame is deliberate, and references ideas about the paradox of art as decoration.
Colour is a continuing critical concern within my practice, through implementation of an intensely saturated and repetitive spectrum. I am interested in breaking limitations between elitism and popular culture through the use of spatial arrangements and colour as an idea.
