About the artist

Emily Hunt (b. 1981, Sydney) works in printmaking (primarily etching), watercolour, collage and ceramics. She has a deep interest in the history and aesthetics of German Renaissance print-making and the ornamental grotesque. She discovered ceramics while on Erasmus exchange in Ghent, Belgium. Ceramics had led her to work in large plaster sculpture installation. Alongside her art practice she also deals in rare, hard-to-find books through Big Ego Books.
