Emily Robards is a visual artist, surreal poet, practicing hermit and country mouse.
She works with the themes of home, nature, love, and the self.
Her practice links together the spiritual and natural world, with an underlining narrative of innocence and the uncanny; It is concept and process driven with symbolic emphasis.
The work arises from the self, drawing from the past, while trying to take control of the present. Robards is inspired by the primitive and sees beauty in the broken.
Born in County Limerick, Ireland; Robards graduated in 2014, from Limerick School of Art and Design (LSAD) where she studied Fine Art Printmaking and Contemporary Practice (BA Hons).
Robards is a member of the Limerick Printmakers and an exhibiting artist at Cill Rialaig Arts Centre.
“So therefore I dedicate myself, to my art, my sleep, my dreams, my labours, my sufferance's,
My loneliness, my unique madness, my endless absorption and hunger
because I cannot dedicate myself to any fellow being.”
