Emily Mullet Art
Emily Mullet is a mixed media artist based in the Greater Philadelphia region. She has a diverse artistic background ranging from ceramics to painting. In her current work, she collages screen-printed imagery between multiple layers of reflective resin. This use of resin adds depth with subtle shadows between the delicately cut layers of paper. Emily uses floral patterns and the female figure to explore themes of identity, growth, and human connection.
Emily received a Bachelor of Arts in studio art with an emphasis in painting and graphic design from the College of the Ozarks in 2012. Her pieces have been featured in CandyFloss Magazine and her work has been represented in multiple galleries and shows in the Greater Philadelphia Region.
During the initial COVID-19 shutdown in early 2020, Emily began working with a model through social media to create portraits reflecting the isolating experience. Finely cut lilies, a traditional funeral flower, were layered into the compositions as a faint reminder of the loss of life. However, these florals simultaneously carry feelings of hope, new growth, and femininity. These combined elements create a variety of dreamlike states that portray the wide range of emotions felt during the collective experience of 2020. Some pieces present moments of peace and stillness, while others illustrate feelings of confusion and insecurity. This collection of work became unintentional documentation of the pandemic experience as it unfolded.
