Emma Childs was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland and received her BFA in fine arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art. She uses eloquent shapes and thoughtful pops of color to create objects that physically interact with their environment. Through her minimalist approach, Childs transforms experiences and emotions into simplified form, color, and geometric edges. The results are eye-catching compositions, which tell complicated and interconnected narratives in an accessible way. Emma Childs’s paintings are layered depictions of existence in the worlds we build around ourselves.
