The colorful work of British designer, Emily Forgot, moves graphic design off the printed page: reforming two-dimensional ideas as playful, sculptural art objects.
Emily’s assemblages are made from wood, painted in bold colors, and designed with a thoroughly playful eye. She explains her work as, “Embracing the odd, the every-day, and the sometimes surreal.” Drawing inspiration from modernist architecture, the perspectival aspect of her wall hangings is slightly unsettling: the eye takes a moment to adjust as it struggles to confirm the spatial arrangement of her Escher-esque artworks. These structure of these pieces was drawn from “interiors and architecture: real, remembered and imagined,” Emily explains. The certainly hark back to modernism and the brightly colored, geometric shapes cut by the Memphis Movement.
