Emily Jackson is a Margaret River, Western Australian printmaker whose artworks evocate the spirit of a place in southwest WA and throughout Australia. Emily appreciates Australia’s biodiversity, with the natural environment providing the subject matter for her vibrant, modern works. They feature abstractions, stylised forms and representational elements depicted through different artistic disciplines, including etching, lino printing, mono printing, drawing, and painting.
The subject matter is often expressed at different scales and perspectives, creating visual interest and complexity.
Emily’s unique, composite approach produces her own identifiable style, coined as “stratisart”, a term that reflects the many layers of the work, which vary in extent, opacity, method, and material. The art produced by this process is attractive and invites deeper reflection by the viewer. The viewer’s gaze travels around the work, with details and layers to appreciate, which can be missed at first glance.
