Postcards: Emily Hermant

I met Emily Hermant in 2004 and immediately knew that she was a rising star. Since I met Emily, she has completed her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and now teaches at Virginia Commonwealth University in the Craft and Material Studies program. This postcard is from her Lies project which she exhibited in Montreal and at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City.

Emily stitched the words onto silk and then dissolved the silk with bleach, leaving just the words. The shadows cast by the text is ethereal.
