RESEARCH + PRACTICE
Emma Coulter is a visual artist + interior designer whose multidisciplinary practice explores the interstitial space between painting and context through a chromo-spatial methodology.
Since completing her undergraduate studies in both Visual Art (Bachelor of Visual Art, QUT, 1998) and interior design (Bachelor of Built Environment, QUT, 2000, with distinction), Emma has worked in a range of design leadership roles for some of Australia’s best known design firms, such as Geyer, BVN Donovan Hill, Woods Bagot, peckvonhartel and the COX group. Whilst juggling these challenging roles, Emma has developed and maintained her own independent artistic practice, exhibiting in numerous solo and group exhibitions locally throughout Australia, and internationally in both Berlin and New York, as well as being the recipient and finalist in a range of awards and prizes.
Currently undertaking a Master of Contemporary Art at Victorian College of the Arts, Emma’s areas of reach include; - painting in ‘the expanded field’, hybrid spatial practice, interstitial space, interdisciplinary discourse, colour methodologies and colour as idea.
