Meet the Artist: Emma Kidd

Meet the Artist: Emma Kidd

Today we chat with Emma Kidd, a Sydney based artist who makes articulated imaginary creatures with the humble paper and paint. I have always admired artists who can draw from their imagination and felt in love with Emma's creatures the day I discovered her work. Everything she does seems so effortless and yet I doubt anyone can replicate her style easily. Her creatures look like characters from another time, innocent beings trapped in Dante's Inferno.  Tell us a bit about you. At the moment I tend towards the articulated creature: which is a bit like a puppet, 2D, hand-painted with limbs...

He suffered from separation anxiety so tried to escape their yard most days. Often I would see him “setting out” on an adventure along the street and I’d go after him. He loved this and turned it into a game I’m sure.   One day...
Roseau: Disintegrate

Roseau: Disintegrate
