Since receiving her MFA from the Tyler School of Art and BFA from the Hartford Art School Weiskopf has been written about in Artnet, Gallerist NY, DNAinfo, the Contemporist, Art Nerd, the Hartford Current, the Brooklyn Rail, The Huffington Post and various blogs. Her NY D.O.T solo Public Sculpture exhibition of Unparallel Way has been written about in over 30 countries around the world and published in City Embellishment and Urban Design II among others and has since been acquired by the Bushnell Sculpture Park, Hartford CT and CT Governor Malloy's Residence on temporary loan. Weiskopf was nominated for the Rome Prize and has been awarded numerous fellowships and residencies including the Artist Pension Trust, Vermont Studio Center and the Wassiac Project. Her recent Solo Exhibition, Pixan Paths//Higher Roads in May 2016 landed her on a live TV interview with Bronx Net TV and in further publications with The New York Optimist, Artnet, Royal Flush Magazine and others. Weiskopf's works are represented in both private and public collections.
Emily Weiskopf’s interdisciplinary work explores ideas around flow, translating energy and rebuilding connections in an increasingly fragmented world. By using line as a foundation she seeks to create physical representations of energetic waves and pathways like building blocks to form interweaving abstractions that seek to remind us how to reconnect to our own personal infrastructures. Influences of science, spirituality, ancient ruins and textiles can be seen throughout her work in an effort to understand the world in which every event is simultaneously psychical and physical.
Working freehanded, she often employs unconventional techniques and implements a wide range of materials such as aluminum, plaster, cement, dry oxides, and dyes with methods from her printmaking and sculpture background resisting categorization aiming solely to create a resonating experience with the viewer. Ultimately, she sees her work as metaphors to our relationship with the world around us – a collection of visual morsels withstanding the testimony of time which is also what makes them personal.
Weiskopf currently lives and works in Boston, MA.
