Emma Fielden’s repetitive, reductive and monochromatic sensibility is coupled with a sensitive approach to materials that are both studied and spontaneous. Fielden began her art practice making contemporary jewellery with a focus on engraving and mark-making, and she has an earlier background in music. In recent years her practice has moved increasingly toward drawing, sculpture, and installation. Since graduating from her studies in 2006, Fielden’s work has been regularly shown in solo and group exhibitions. She was a finalist in the 2016 Blake Prize and has received awards including the 2014 National Contemporary Jewellery Award and the 2009 Buda Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society Award. In 2013 she received a New Work Grant from the Australia Council and was commissioned to make commemorative brooches for the recipients of the 2013 Australia Council Visual Arts Awards. Fielden is currently working from Parramatta Artists Studios, where she has been granted a one-year studio tenancy.
