Artist's Statement

Award-winning artist Emmeline Hastings combines unusual and contrasting materials in a unique process to create striking, beautiful and contemporary wearable objects. She is inspired by the visualisation of sound waves, music and related natural phenomena. 
      Her pieces hold moments of ‘resonance’ captured in static forms of carved perspex, stainless steel, titanium and precious metals. Her ‘crystal-like’ organic forms of perspex provide a reflective and intriguing base for the metallic elements. They are tactile, one-off pieces that play with optical effect to create an illusion of movement, weight and fluidity. 
       Emmeline explores how many individual elements brought together can create surface and form. This relates to her interest in the molecular structures of our surroundings and the energy that vibrates and maintains them. 
       Exhibiting internationally, her work has received interest from acclaimed galleries and renowned collections. 
 

"All my work shares a recognisable aesthetic of fluidity and movement, a unique visual language inspired by the motion and patterns of 'waves'. 

From sound waves to water, I hope to make associations with varying natural phenomenon through a contemporary and individual making process. 

I combine contrasting materials of perspex and metals, to create both interior-architectural and jewellery based pieces. All pieces are unique and most cannot be repeated, although I will happily work to commission. "
