Jana Emburey

Jana Emburey
  • Work
  • Biography
Jana’s work mainly explores the concept of time perception, memory, inter-connectivity and human condition. Her work is informed by the close relationship of everything in nature, reflected and replicated in a multitude of ways.

Although she likes to explore various media, intricate, cell-like ink drawings on Japanese paper, sometimes combined with painting is what she has been mostly concentrating on for the past few years, creating a body of work under the name of Sweet Oblivion. These delicate and labour intensive drawings represent human as well as any other cells/particles found in nature and show the connection of everything around and within us.
BA Hons Visual Art, (1st Class Honours) 2012
BA Art and Design, 2011
