Embrace and Repeat
We are thrilled to have Emily Binder showcase her newest collection here at Aspect!
Emily Binder was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan before moving to Los Angeles, then Santa Cruz and finally, San Francisco, where she currently resides. She has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Santa Cruz, California with areas of study in both Business Management Economics and Studio Art. Binder spent time studying in Lyon, France while pursuing her undergraduate degree and has also travelled to Spain, the Netherlands, Germany and Israel with each experience leaving her thirsty for more adventures. She mostly works in abstract painting but has also dabbled in travel and event photography.
Binder’s painting mainly centers on repetition displayed with bright colors and a mix of simple and intricate lines, shapes and pattern. Her work aims to capture the entropy present in every day life mixed with a simple prettiness which represents the possibilities that come with positivity and maintaining an optimistic attitude. While these patterns depict strange and sometimes chaotic clusters of information, the tone is always upbeat and warm, suggesting that with chaos can often also come contentment, acceptance and peace of mind.
Exhibition Dates: December 9th- January 31st
