About the work

Emily Payne focuses on the materiality of pedestrian items, transforming them into objects with a minimalist design sensibility. Payne is particularly interested in paper, and she works with specialized types as well as pages pulled from books. “I am inspired to work with and transform ordinary objects that show traces of the passage of time and human history,” Payne has said. In her work Pins, Payne submerges individual sheets in gouache. She pins the sheets to the wall like a scientific display, creating simple assemblages that accentuate the texture of the paper through the bleed of pigment dye.
