Emily Wardill’s works are best known for their sensual and psychologically charged refracted narratives. Wardill’s films, photographic works, drawings, and props investigate the complexities of communication and representation, the limitations and imprecision of language, and the point at which the immaterial adopts the material through insinuation.
