Emily Furr’s work is an exploration of restoring the feminine archetype and embracing a new era rooted in the yonic symbolism. Delving into her enduring interest in machine imagery as a vehicle for articulating the human condition, she often charges the objects in her paintings with a sensual, bodiless power, both forms and the void that surrounds them become anthropomorphic depictions of human relations.
