Graphic artist Emily Forgot has created a surrealist series of 3D works, trying her hand at artworks beyond the printed page.

Pushing herself to use processes and materials uncommon to her current practice, the collection includes a series of assemblages depicting architectural scenes. Inspired by drawings of “buildings and spaces both real, remembered and imagined,” from Emily’s sketchbooks, the sculptures use fantastical, Escher-like perspective and bold geometric blocks of colour, made from layers of painted wood.

Emily has also collaborated with furniture maker Charlie McKenzie to create a chair with a laddered back that reaches to the ceiling; and rug makers Ceadogan to make a tufted version of one of the geometric scenes.

The works are on display as part of Neverland, Emily’s solo show at KK Outlet until 30 September.
