Emilie Clark, Faculty in Visual Arts on her show “Meditation on Hunting“:
“After preserving and studying my own food waste in Sweet Corruptions, I wanted to go backwards in the food sequence and investigate the parts of the meal and the worlds out of which they come (air, water, soil). Doing so seemed like another step in exploring the literal meaning of ecology as “earth’s household.” I realized I had to hunt for food.
Meditations on Hunting included many watercolors that have come directly out of the hunting experience with some that encompass the larger context and backdrop of the taxonomy project. Much of the work for the project was made in and around her floating research station in New Hampshire, where she lives part of the year. But some of it also came from other locations where I’ve had hunting experiences with new mentors who have helped me hone my skills. These experiences have been important and have informed my process.
