Emily's Style

Her passion for spatial and 3D design is embodied by her construction of architectural “assemblages”, which are modelled on aspects of her day-to-day surroundings. Bright, colourful and faultlessly aligned, these contoured creations reflect an array of factual, fictitious and re-imagined buildings. They inhabit the curious space between 2D and 3D, intangible and concrete. 

 

Originally from Sheffield, Emily has lived and worked in London since graduating from Liverpool School of Art and Design in 2004. While continuing to develop her dynamic visual language, she dedicates time to her popular blog Muse & Maker, as well as engaging with an array of impressive clients such as the V&A and Somerset House.

"Inspired by design history and architecture, places visited and spaces imagined my pieces are often about giving form to memories - they become a souvenir of a time, a place and a feeling” - Emily Forgot

Drop 2 - Summer 2022

"The Bricolage collection was developed through intuitive play with material elements to create compositions in the same way an initial sketch would be developed. In contrast to the architectural assemblage pieces this series began with no preconceived idea of how the final artwork would take shape. Wooden shapes were instinctively re-imagined into new structures and forms to create the Maquettes which form the collection." - Emily Forgot, The Bricolage Collection

Drop 4 - High Summer 2021

"'A room with a view' is a series of paintings and assemblages that focus on the interior and exterior. Surreal and abstracted imagined views are created from various apertures, playfully looking out but with a sense of being held within." - Emily Forgot, A Room With A View

Drop 2 - Spring / Summer 2020

Realised in isolation the research & making process undertaken to create the Souvenirs collection provided an an opportunity to travel elsewhere. For this particular series it began with a trip to early French modernism. Taking cues from the curves of Jean Royere's furniture, the graphic textiles of Eileen Gray and the sculptural monuments of the Martel brothers.

'Souvenirs' collages the spirit of these inspirations with personal recollections of trips away and places imagined - all when physical travel was not an option. The series gives form to these memories and muses. Creating a series of objects infused with the joy of escapism, a collection of souvenirs.
