María Emilia Saurí
Migrating to Australia 12 years ago, María’s work focuses on the connections between her home in Australia and her original home Argentina. Stemming from the idea of the night sky as a common ground, María builds on physical places that exist in between by definition and uses them to illustrate the complexity of belonging. From portals and thresholds to the evocation of invisible places as a memory or a promise, María’s work acknowledges the emotional and the ambiguous in the idea of Place.
Originally from Argentina, María Emilia studied Visual Arts and Architecture. Her practice is deeply informed by her migration to Australia, focusing on the concepts of Place, Connection and Home. With years of experience in the art field and in commercial screen printing, María Emilia is an integral part of Impress Printmakers and is interested in creating a collective of artists that support one another.
In how they develop their work conceptually and visually: Gemma Smith, Olafur Eliasson, Eva Hesse, Antonia Guzman and contemporary printmakers (Kim Minuti, Emma Studd among others)
