Multidisciplinary artist and designer Emmeline Morris creates works in response to her experiences of disconnection, dissociation, and overstimulation in relation to her mental disabilities. Her self-referential visual language is used to parody her concerns of public visibility and appearing as different to society’s understanding of the normative body. Through a mix of two-dimensional paintings and video works with three-dimensional sculptural works, Morris often uses her own body as muse in order to translate the fragmented and abstract sense of self she experiences. Morris recently graduated with a Bachelor of Design from the University of New South Wales Art & Design, Sydney.
