Emma Kohlmann

Emma Kohlmann’s paintings retrace the subconscious with symbolism drawn from flora, fauna, ancient statues, figurines and mythological narratives. She creates her deeply spiritual dreamscapes on burned wood frames and inhabits them with multi-headed trees, deeply-rooted plants, angels and wondrous animals with human faces. Kohlmann’s work does not employ traditional composition or naturalistic proportions, taking away any sense of hierarchical order—plants, animals and humans coexist peacefully as they morph into interchangeable entities.
