EMMA BARTIK

Emma Bartik is a Sydney artist working with clay, colour and physical bodies to explore themes of fragility and femininity. A 2016 UNSW Art and Design graduate, Emma’s playful yet sophisticated pieces blur the line between functional and sculptural objects. With a distinctives colour palette of pastel and sorbet tones, Emma uses an experimental process with coloured porcelain to create decorative landscapes of colour unique to each piece. Emma works from her Sydney studio under the name Voluptuary Ceramics.

"I draw from nostalgic memories of my own childhood and create vibrantly coloured and robustly textured works. I am informed and ispired by TV documenteries, scenic Playstation 1 games, and early cel animation cartoons, I would say, my paintings and sculptures explore pre-millenia aesthatics."
