Illustration, Printing, and Painting
Emma Fsadni was born in Braine-l’Alleud, Belgium and educated in Australia, the Netherlands and Malta where she recently received her B.A. Honours in Fine Arts from the MCAST Institute for Creative Arts, (First Class).
As an adolescent, Fsadni was absorbed in all things materialistic, however, with age came awareness, recognizing the frivolousness that such a lifestyle brings. As a result, her work addresses contemporary ideas and conflicts concentrated around society’s superficiality and constructed realities.
Developed from self-reflective experiences, which are then applied in a social context, she addresses contemporary observations and conflicts surrounding themes such as idealization, habits, and perception. Fsadni translates the complexity of her concepts through means of minimal aesthetics; condensing her ideas visually, while maintaining levels of intricacy in process. Fsadni tends to gravitate towards two-dimensional media, namely illustration, printing, and painting. She finds that such mediums allow a level of sensitivity in execution to be maintained. This element of sensitivity often goes beyond this aesthetic value and extends into her works’ concepts.
Following her studies, Fsadni has already taken part in a selection of collective exhibitions. She is currently working towards materializing an ongoing series of illustrative editioned gilcée prints titled REPOSE.
