Emma Davies is a Melbourne based artist who works with polypropelene to create exquisite forms and more recently sculptures. Her starting point, when I first noticed her works some years ago, was the mesh polypropelene bags that one finds commonly used for packaging.That something so universally available could be turned into an object of such beauty quite transfixed me at that time. A month ago I happened to watch an ABC TV Sunday Arts Program which featured Emma at work in her studio as well as her more recent sculptures inspired by a trip to South Africa that Emma took part in called The South Project. This international arts project 'brings together the distinct voices of the southern hemisphere through south-south dialogue and cross-cultural exchange' and took place in October 2007. This work and other information is available at the artists website.
