Emma Talbot discusses her practice, which bridges the personal and political, and charts a feminist journey through prevalent contemporary concerns, such as social politics, gender, the natural world, and our intimacy with technology and language. Exploring inner landscapes through drawing, painting, installation and sculpture, her work could be understood as visual poems, imbued as they are with language, emotion and narrative.
