Prempeh, Emma


I attempt to depict things that are essentially intangible through paint: trying to evidence my perception and experience of time as spiritual nuisances and existential discoveries.
The marking of time in my videos through calendars, clocks and bodies, enables time shifts between ghostly figures on the canvases to have a ‘double-life’ on the screen. I'd describe most of my work as intimate and warm, my methods used to explore the fragility of my own body by marking my on-going experience with health and perception, producing explorations of my heritage as a woman of colour.
