Emily Honderich, was born in 1983 in Toronto, Canada. I create media artworks,paintings, and drawings.
By experimenting with form and structure, I formalize the coincidental and reveal the conscious composition process behind seemingly random selections of objects. My thought processes are frequently revealed as assemblages.
I consider art-making to be a craft executed by using clear rules that always refer back to social reality.
I question the divide between memory and experience. I want to bring the viewer into the stream of the current moment.
My works are formal but they are also poetic. My images reveal the instability of what we see as reality.
The humans and objects in my work have a natural awkwardness. This creates humour and shows an individuals vulnerabilities.
I want the viewer to become a component of the art.
