Facade I and II by Emily Walley

For November Unblurred, Studio 5013 features an installation by Emily Walley.  Through November 30. emilywalley.com

Artist’s Statement:

“My work realizes an image through deconstructing and rebuilding place. Each work is inspired by a specific location but through the deconstructive act the pieces become a vague descriptor of a place, incomplete signs of what they represent. I am drawn to the layered nature of the urban environment and use photography in my work to document homes and buildings throughout the city to be transformed into architectural fragments.”

It’s been an eventful few weeks: preparation for a job interview (which happened today), publication in Optiko and Pryme Magazine (excited. proud!) and I finally have a website, which I promised to have finished before summer’s end. This blog though is my baby and my writing home, so I’ll be back in a few days to post more. In the meantime, check out my instant photo site. I’ve wanted to have one for so long, and I’m finally glad I got around to it. Now I’m off to curl up with The Lives and Loves of Daisy and Violet Hilton and a bowl of pork dumplings: gifts of nourishment and solitude.



Summer Notes

It’s funny how, for years, I lived with that “summer promise” feeling in the back of my mind: the one where, once school is over, adventure and change awaits – but it’s only another season. I worked lots of overtime, watched Veronica Mars, buried myself in books. Struggling lately to get through A Tale for the Time Being, but I’m having trouble with fiction these days. My mind wanders. I’d rather be out in the world, photographing my ordinary neighborhood, and others’ ordinary neighborhoods. I reconnected with old friends from home. Seeing them in person for the first time in almost 20 years made my heart swell with love: do they know how much their friendship helped make me the woman I am today? It’s something I feel as if I don’t have to say out loud: coming from the same place, we have an understanding. This summer has been about comforts like car trips and faded photos; accepting middle age with humor and something like grace; finding ways to regroup after years of grief. It’s nostalgia for places so tiny they have disappeared from maps.
