Friday Night Flicks: Emily Martin

I usually try to avoid posting videos a lot of my readers have likely seen before, but I am feeling a bit lazy at the moment. I have spent two years getting ready for a solo exhibition, I recently finished doing a post a day for the Byopia Press Advent Calendar 2020, and I still have to write out detailed installation instructions for staff at the Saskatchewan Craft Council Gallery. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, I cannot assist with hanging my show.

The Jaffe Center for Book Arts has been posting a video for the JCBA Artist of the Week for a while now. Some of the videos introduced people whose works I had not encountered before, but some have been of people I already know showing recent works. Emily Martin is in the latter category.



I have liked Emily Martin’s work since I first encountered it a number of years ago, but this past year I particularly enjoyed her little dancing figures. If you would like to spend a few minutes this weekend looking at more of them in detail, you can find them on her Instagram account. The dancers were posted between March 24 and July 4, 2020.

    Thanks for this! I encountered Emily Martin’s work when I first got into book arts, then time trimmed that memory. I also wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your Advent posts. I really liked the folded-star template and have used it several times. Thank goodness it works even when the execution is a little wonky. Wonky is my middle name.
