Hotel Indigo | 24 West Franklin Street | Free & Open to the Public

Maryland Art Place (MAP) is pleased to present its last exhibition of the year at Hotel Indigo by introducing new works by Baltimore based emerging artist, Emma Childs! As an abstract painter, Emma is known for re-interpreting the boundaries of the traditional canvas. Six of Child’s paintings will be hung in Hotel Indigo’s library and Poets Modern Cocktails and Eats.

“In my current body of work, I use my personal experiences with unique relationships to evaluate and explore human connections, interactions and emotion, as well as how we exist within spaces through painting,” states Childs. She creates geometric wooden structures as the basis for her paintings, choosing simple, amorphous shapes and bold colors in her work. Her goal is to create paintings that spark an emotional response by the viewer. 

“Transforming experiences and emotions into a language of simplified form, color, edge, and paint applications has allowed me to simplify what is actually complicated interconnected metaphors about relationships and the world we build around us,” states Childs.

Emma Childs was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, where she lives and works today. She recently graduated from MICA with a bachelor’s degree in general fine arts. Throughout her time at MICA, she was featured in multiple on-campus exhibitions. Childs has been featured in several group exhibitions in the Washington DC/Baltimore area as well as New Orleans, Louisiana.

We look forward to seeing you there!
