Emma McNally:

Emma McNally (b. 1969, Essex) lives and works in London. She received her degree in English and Philosophy from the University of York. She is a self-taught artist, possessing  a subtle drawing style that fuels the complex mark-making of her large works in graphite on paper. She writes: "I like graphite’s materiality: its mess and dirt as well as its capacity to leave the cleanest, sharpest percussive marks and lines. I feel like I'm forging land formations when I use it, or scattering particles, or spiralling vortices of smoke and water." Recent exhibitions include: Mirror City, Hayward Gallery, London (2014-2015); Abstract Drawing, Drawing Room, London (2014); Atoms Insects Mountains Stars- Selected drawing, Trinity Contemporary, London; and Young Gallery, Salisbury (solo show, 2012);  The Curator’s Egg Altera Pars, Anthony Reynolds, London (2012); Seeing/ Knowing, Kenton College of Liberal Arts (2011); State of Flux: Drawing in London (with Layla Curtis, Kate Atkin, James Brooks, Juliet Haysom); and Trinity Contemporary, New York and London (2011).
