March 2020

For her solo exhibition In the Melting Pot, ​Emily Thomas will present a series of abstract sculptures and three-dimensional wall paintings, produced during her artist residency at La Escocesa. The exhibition will demonstrate her research of the creative factories and urban developments in El Poblenou and other post-industrial neighbourhoods within Barcelona. The historical, cultural and social elements of these places are reflected in the contrasting forms, colours and materiality of their buildings and chimneys. Through a process of abstraction and metamorphosis, Emily has applied this concept in her sculptural work to reflect the ever-changing sense of place in these neighbourhoods.
