amze emmons

I’ve written about Philadelphia based artist / illustrator Amze Emmons before {way back in 2012}, but I just found these pieces … bad pun totally intended. These works are graphite and gouache on handmade paper, and I’ll hand it over to Amze to explain the rest:

“Notations is an on-going series of drawings from my walks around Philadelphia. At about the same time I started this work, Nicole Donnelly (of the Paper Think Tank) started producing ‘Philly Kozo,’ a handmade paper made from Kozo growing wild along the banks of the Delaware River, on land belonging to the power company. This locally-sourced paper seemed appropriate to use for a series of street objects found on my local walks, and so the Notations drawings emerged. This series will require several more years to build up the quantity of work required to have the desired impact.”

Can’t wait! Happy Friday.
