About the Artwork:
“NO ONE KNOWS is a piece about transformation and mortality, depicting the moment that one decides to change and build upon past memories to become a new being. Caught in a state of flux and contortion, the figure embraces both the strength and fragility of the human mind and body; their anatomy changes and nature embraces them.” – Emma Black
About the Artist:
Emma Black is a UK based artist. She graduated in 2012 from the University of Westminster with a First Class honours degree in Illustration, and in 2016 from the Cambridge School of Art with a MA in Fine Art.
The unknown, whether an aspect of the physical world or a limitation of the human mind, is the main starting point for her work. Using mainly traditional media and autobiographical themes, her practice explores notions of The Uncanny, human subconscious and our relationship to death and the natural world.
