About Emelie Richardson
Emelie Richardson is a fiber artist whose studio practice spans painting and craft. Emelie earned a BFA from the University of Kentucky College of Fine Arts and currently lives in Chimayo, New Mexico, where she has apprenticed and worked closely with 7th generation master weavers for several years. While her practice is tied to Rio Grande weaving through technique, Emelie’s work pushes the boundaries of traditional process and design. Her interests lie in speaking a visceral language, highlighting subtleties in material, surface and tonality. She explores and emphasizes unique relationships between painting and weaving, embracing chance and improvisation as enduring elements in the process. Imagery in her work often mimics the repetitive and meditative qualities of weaving itself. Other themes embedded in Emelie’s work relate to sense of place and body/landscape relationships.
