Emma Buswell is a West Australian based artist, curator and designer. Emma is fascinated with systems of government, economies and culture particularly in relation to constructs of place, identity and community. Her current work is focusing on relationships between identity and place, with a motivated enquiry into the way in which kitsch and nostalgia play into our understandings of self-identification and personal histories. Using Tropes appropriated from popular culture and Australian art history, Buswell examines her own family histories intuited through conversations and the learnt craft techniques from her maternal family line.
