We have been following William Emmert on the Beautiful/Decay blog for quite a while (see posts here and here). We enjoy the exploration into his past and the pop culture nostalgia he recounts. Emmert has recently expanded his practice by employing trompe l’oeil techniques using nothing but paper. His familiar use of 80’s Professional Wrestling imagery and quotes still remain but have taken a backseat to sculpture and installation. The viewer is confronted with what looks to be an exhibition space in transition before banal studio materials are revealed to be paper objects.
