Emmalyn Rucker creates mixed media drawings as well as paintings to explore how timeless sculptures have affected viewers as well as forged interesting relationships with their environments. Using both intricate, decorative patterns and flat areas of color, she examines how sculptures have become hidden, masked, or simply covered by society, emotions, and circumstances. Accumulations are used to form layer upon layer until they burst into an explosion of color and emotion. Referencing street art has allowed her to instantaneously give voice to the sculptures with which she engages.
