About the Artist 

Emily Mullet is a mixed media artist based in Phoenixville, PA. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art with an emphasis in Painting and Graphic Design from the College of the Ozarks in 2012. She uses printmaking techniques to explore her interest in floral imagery and the female form. Much of Emily’s work is influenced by contemporary street artists, drawing inspiration from aerosol paints, stencils, and wheat pastes. Emily completed an apprenticeship at Moravian Pottery and Tile works and has been featured by PxP Contemporary, Arts to Hearts Project, SHOWFIELDS, and CandyFloss Magazine.

Artist Statement

In the Mind Blooms series of female portraits with flower hair, I referenced Victorian symbolism to illustrate the mind as a garden. To create the collection, I began by applying an oval silhouette with acrylic plaint to mimic cameo jewelry. From there, the figure was sketched in with charcoal pencils. The floral hair is layered silkscreened flowers that were individually cut apart and collaged together. In choosing which flowers to include, I primarily referenced the Victorian language of flowers to create hair that symbolizes the mind of the artist. Each portrait is titled with a female name, also from the Victorian era. The flowers used in these portraits are lupine (imagination and possible portal to the fairy world), acanthus (the fine arts), and dahlias (elegance, inner strength, and change). 

The Mind Blooms series explores the idea of the mind as a vast garden. In tending to your own mind, one can prune, trim, and transplant to meet the expectations of a well-maintained garden. The priority of this method is to blend in or match what your fellow gardeners are cultivating. However, the artist's mind, featured in these portraits, prioritizes a different method. It is a method that seeks to value the native plants of the mind—personal traits and strengths. The goal of this gardener is to nurture the nuances of one's own mind instead of replacing them. Its here the garden evolves into something more beautiful and wild than any preplanned garden.
