Filming with Art Rookie

Last week the incredibly nice folks from Art Rookie came to call on me in my home studio which looks like this:



to interview me about being one of their Art Rookie artists. They interviewed several of us over the space of two days. Here’s their film:

RCA Secret 2015

This year’s Royal College of Art Secret exhibition and sale of work raised nearly £150,000 which goes directly to bursaries for post-grad Fine Art students. The RCA spread the show to Dubai so there were four postcards to make, three for London and one for Dubai. My postcards were all paper cut typography.

Picture interview with Kollektiv Gallery

I was interviewed by Sophie Giblin the curator of Kollektiv Gallery. The proviso with their interviews is that all the answers have to be pictures. I did mine entirely in paper, you can see the piece here  http://www.kollektivgallery.com/artists/emma-russell/
