Brigitte Mulholland, Paris

Emily Orta

For Art-o-Rama 2024, Brigitte Mulholland is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by Emily Orta.

 

Emily Orta is a self-taught British-Argentinian ceramicist, born and raised in Paris. Her work is concerned with the fragility of living organisms and systems. Orta deliberately blurs the lines between animate and inanimate, real and surreal – crafting sculptural forms that invite viewers to ponder the complexities of existence.

 

Her intuitive act of sculpting clay captures the intricate beauty of life and the promise of the possibility in the unknown. Orta has developed a unique personal language, grounded in the process of making. She pushes the technical boundaries of the medium through the creation of her own glazes, and a rigorous – and somewhat unorthodox – glazing and firing process, blurring the lines between tradition and experimentation. Her ceramics stand as eloquent expressions of the beauty found in ambiguity.

 

Orta is included in the gallery’s inaugural exhibition, ‘Le vernissage, partie un’ and will have her first solo exhibition with Brigitte Mulholland in December 2024.
