As a designer and lover of type, I really enjoy when art and type are combined — I pretty much enjoy when type is combined with anything. So it’s not surprising that I enjoyed coming across Australian artist Emily Floyd’s work. Drawing inspiration from the text-based Conceptual Art of the 60s, Floyd thinks it’s important to find new ways of working with language. In her art, she likes to combine different texts and fragments of different narratives and have the viewer experience them. Themes in her work include politics, ecology, philosophy and fiction.
You can see more of Emily Floyd’s installations on the Anna Schwartz Gallery site.
