CIRCA:

Animation is a relatively new self taught medium for you, since you’ve been unable to work in your studio during lockdown. Do you miss painting? And how has this medium developed your practice?

EMMA TALBOT:

I didn’t paint in the first lockdown, but after spending a long time working from home, animating on a screen, I was very happy to make some large, physical work (painting and 3D forms) for my show ‘Ghost Calls’ at DCA, Dundee. I like to move between media, it gives me a sense of freedom, and stops me getting bogged down in one thing. Animation has been an amazing extension of my practice. I see it as a way of walking around in the world of my drawings and paintings. The combination of image, text and sound is a very good way of articulating my ideas, and I like the way it interfaces with the other materialities in my work.
