Emily Halpern received her BFA from Pratt Institute in New York City and her MFA from San Diego State University in California. She has developed a personal pictorial language of symbols which are intuitive and symbolic rather than descriptive. Her process seeks to map her inner world and open the locked door of the unconscious through methods suggested by Surrealism. Archetypal imagery resurfaces throughout her paintings and acts as a surrogate for the self. The cryptic narratives leave gaps for viewers to fill in, as a springboard for their own imaginations. Her resin pieces are made up of four different layers, with paint, mixed media and resin in between. The separate layers and vibrant colors add luminosity and depth.
