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.
