Gatehouse by Emma Camden

Architecture has been a continual strand in Emma Camden’s work since her time at art school. Her dissertation was on the metaphysical paintings of Georgio de Chirico the style of which has been a constant reference point – perspective askew pushing the viewer to see her work at an unsettling angle. Other historical touchstones include the paintings in the ruins of Pompeii, images of gatehouses or towers on the walls of bedrooms that were believed to be access points to the spirit world whilst people were sleeping. The gatehouse also explores a ‘sense of place’, family ties and genealogy.
