Emma Louise Moore is an Irish artist based in London. She holds an MA from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London and a BA from Limerick School of Art and Design. She was a finalist for the National Sculpture Prize. Her work catches the ephemerality of nature and questions humanity's ecological literacy. Past shows include Tate Exchange at Tate Modern and solo shows in New York and Ireland. She was one of two artists to realise the Monash Children’s Hospital Bronze Commission in Melbourne, Australia.
Emma Louise takes the mentality of a crowd as her point of artistic departure. Investigating their movements, her works calls for an awareness of our complacent tendency to follow others, becoming ontological refugees, distanced from our individuality. Her recent works align with the summer solstice, through working with Astrophysics, their placement is meticulously calculated, creating a yearly phenomenon. She is attempting to reach a point of intrinsical awareness once held by our neolithic ancestors.
