Painting is a slow process. This prolonged reflection seeks out our own experiences and associations, creating a mutable narrative. In painting everyday scenes and landscapes, the mundane becomes a sublime, visceral experience.

Emily Rapport studied painting at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York, and received her BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She currently lives and works in Chicago, Illinois.
