Emily Besser

Emily Besser is an Australian artist living and working in London.

Emily completed First Class Honours in Painting at Sydney College of the Arts in 2001, and has intermittently exhibited her work since then. After a 10 year stint as a native title and environmental planning lawyer, Emily returned to a daily practice of painting. 

Her work is abstract and process-based and she uses collage, drawings and painting to think through her interest in ideas relating to ritual and religiosity, spirituality and belief, psychology and anthropology, and the sedentary and domestic arts of gardening and child-rearing.
