Piece description from the artist
I was a dancer for many years, and the figural vocabulary of dance remains important to me.
Chloë Feldman Emison has shown her drawings widely in the United States and Britain, while also working as animator and illustrator. She has been drawing since early childhood and had her first solo show at 16.
