Emma Sutherland is a mixed-media artist exploring the cycle of life, death, and rebirth through large-scale painting. Within this exploration, a focus on sacred space has emerged, using dualities, cycles, and balance to underpin and guide her work; this ethos is used from concept to process. In an attempt to capture the threshold between the profane and the sacred, she is also questioning: What makes a space sacred? Is it the space, shrine, monolith, or personal interaction that defines the experience? Can a painting create a sacred space, and does that change the definition of a painting?
