Emma VR: Painting Life

Wyatt Roy

 

I was standing in my friend Emma's art gallery, looking at her paintings. They were big and beautiful, but I couldn't figure out what message they were trying to tell me. I wanted to be inside of her paintings. So I asked her to take me to her studio, where her paintings are born. She showed me the sculptures she makes, which she uses in her paintings. I was starting to understand, but something was still missing. That night, I fell asleep in her bedroom, and the pictures on her walls danced in my mind. I saw the stories that inspire her to sculpt and paint. I realized that I had stepped through her paintings, into her mind.
I want to give other people the chance to get to know the artist behind the artwork; to see the story behind the paintings.
