Emily Harris

Emily Harris is a Brooklyn-based artist, originally from MN. She received a BFA from Kenyon College, OH. Her love and familiarity of the Midwest's blonde fields and open skies inspire her drawings and textile work. Combining a geometric playfulness with material pattern and texture, she collages different types of fabrics and prints to create intuitive and wonder-filled sculptural vignettes. Similar to a quilter – she refers to her 3-D cubes as quilting squares, she creates pattern out of pre-existing prints, in the end reusing and calling attention to their inherent beauty.
