Emma Childs

Emma Childs is an American painter born in 1996. The Baltimore native uses eloquent shapes and thoughtful pops of color to create objects that physically interact with their environment.

Through her minimalist approach, Childs transforms experiences and emotions into simplified form, color and geometric edges. 

The results are eye-catching compositions, which tell complicated and interconnected narratives in an accessible way. Childs’s paintings are layered depictions of existence in the worlds we build around ourselves.
