British artist Emily Forgot has released a new collection of assemblage pieces and limited edition prints in collaboration with surface designer .

Emily produces wooden assemblages depicting imagined interiors and architecture that sit happily between the fine art and the design world. These works were first exhibited at her debut solo show ‘Neverland’ at KK Outlet Gallery during London Design Festival 2016. Since then, Emily has developed new collections seasonally alongside commissions from collectors and interior designers alike to create bespoke pieces.

These collections have been exhibited as part of her open studios in South East London and sold on her online store to her ever-growing buyers list. In fact, the last ‘VILLA’ collection sold out through Instagram before she had the chance to add the series to her online shop.

Emily’s latest collection is called ‘RESORT’ and draws on personal childhood memories of summer holidays spent in the French 1970’s resort La Grande Motte, a unique and futuristic place conceived by architect Jean Balladur. All the artworks are inspired by places Emily has visited on her travels but are playfully re-imagined in both form and colour. The collection consists of original assemblages and limited edition prints.

‘RESORT’ also sees Emily experimenting with new materials within her assemblages. After attending a terrazzo tile casting workshops run by surface designer Olivia Aspinall, Emily felt Olivia would be the perfect collaborator. The carefully chosen colour palette of the pieces combined with the terrazzo Jesmonite expertly cast by Olivia enhances the holiday mood and the joyous feel of the Resort collection as a whole.

When approached by The Unlimited shop in Brighton Emily felt it was the perfect space in which to launch RESORT — a gallery with a seaside location fit for a collection inspired by travel & sunshine.

 

Emily Forgot’s RESORT series is available to view and purchase at UNLIMITED GALLERY in Brighton, London. A small selection of original assemblages is also available to purchase directly through Emily’s .
