Emily Budd

Emily uses casting processes to explore the meaning of objects, time and location. Her bronze sculptures utilize the ancient lost-wax bronze casting process to document the invention of forms by the artist.  While breaking the boundaries of identification and classification in order to explore a separated difference, these sculptures hold fast to the concepts of miniaturization, complexity and duration.

About My Work:

I am attracted to casting processes because it represents a journey that the artwork travels through.  I regard this process as symbolical of reform and social change. In the end the final piece is the documentation of that journey, and questions status quo dualisms.
