About the work:

The Inner Tree, Original Artwork by Emily Besser.

This piece is part of Talismans, Rafts, Mementosa group exhibition showcasing the work of the entire community of Modern Times artists. Throughout 2020 artists used their practice to make sense of what was happening, and this show celebrates this rich vein of creative output.

“There is no question that my art-making during this time has served as something of a raft for me. Without it I’m sure I’d sink, or at least float along much less effectively. As a verb, ‘to raft’ is to fasten things together. And keep on floating. Creating a small collection of works, and even a group show, is surely such a process,” says Emily.

About the Artist:

Emily Besser’s abstract and gestural works are in conversation with a diverse range of ideas, sometimes relating to religiosity, spirituality and belief, or psychology and anthropology, or the sedentary arts of gardening, child-rearing and home-making. But mostly the conversation returns to the practice of painting itself.
