Emmett is a linocut printmaker, working in Oxford. Initially trained in 3D dimensional design, he has worked within graphic & software design/illustration, then moved into exterior & landscaping design over the last decade. His more recent outdoor work utilised architecture steel forms and structures, influenced by modern architecture and large-scale minimalist sculpture.
In his printmaking, he explores architecture within our environment. He is inspired with bold architectural forms and details, finding these not only in larger more obvious structures, but also the details within the mundane, everyday. Many buildings and places are more obviously designed to capture our attention, but there are details on some buildings and structures that otherwise blend into the background. He enjoys finding the geometric forms and shapes within these environments. The encroachment of functional civil engineering structures into our landscape also interests him with the contrast of nature.
