New Image Art is pleased to present "Magic Symbols," a solo exhibition premiering new works on paper and large paintings by Emma Kohlmann. Emma Kohlmann (b. 1989 in the Bronx, NY) lives and works in Florence, MA. She creates a large number of colorful abstract shapes which are transformed into stylized images. Her body of work consists of hundreds of variations of animals, nudes, and fauna. Kohlmann’s jewel toned water colors are often formatted in a grid forming a vibrant installation. She received her B.A. from Hampshire College, Amherst, MA. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally including solo exhibitions at Nationale, Portland, OR, and Kit Gallery, Tokyo. Selected group exhibitions include the Portland Museum of Art, Portland, OR, MOCA Tucson, AZ, and New Release, New York, NY. Kohlmann publishes her own artist’s books, zines and made various record covers for music labels.
