Em's Midnight Garden
Emma McLevie is an artist who uses papercutting as a medium through which to express her fascination with the natural world.
She created Em’s Midnight Garden to explore the vision of a place that is wild, mysterious and alluring, and where a sense of re-enchantment and emotional identification with non-human life might be awakened.
Using recurring imagery of owls, moths, fungi and other living being she feels a personal connection to she explores the idea that as humans we are connected to all other living things on earth – and that if we open our eyes, we may realise that the natural world is all around us.
Paper has a delicate and transitory quality in a similar way to that of small wild creatures. Each piece, which has been drawn in intricate detail, hand-cut from a single sheet of paper and float-mounted in a shadow box, has a presence which beckons you into its nocturnal world.
