Emily Cobb

Emily Cobb uses digital technology to illustrate personal fables in which animals play the central role. By imagining another reality in which animals show signs of aging in unusual ways, Emily explores both the appealing and destructive results of transformation—birds unravel like ribbons as they grow older; fish dry up overtime; frogs slowly thaw like icicles on a warm day. Emily’s often large pieces are always wearable. Through the juxtaposition, metamorphosis, and abstraction of representational forms, her work captivates the imagination.
