Rhona eve clews
Rhona's practice encompasses photography, installation and performance, working predominately with analogue photographic processes including cameraless photography, light sensitive materials, 35mm, 120mm and sunprint paper (originally intended for use by children.) These performative processes echo early nineteenth-century photographic practices and are driven by a desire to interrogate and penetrate the essential alchemical potential of the photograph.
She is currently completing an MFA at the Slade, London.
For Emma painting provides the perfect medium through which to explore her interest in time, space and memory. Painting solely from memory, her process of creation is reflected in the almost life-size scale of her works.
Emma Fineman was born in Berkeley, California. She is currently living and working in London where she is on the Master in Arts Degree Course in Painting at the Royal College of Art.
