Emily McCartan @ Desktop Residency, Jul 29 – Aug 17

, 30 July 2014

The Desktop Residency project brings artist Emily McCartan to its virtual wallpaper line-up this month, downloadable on the site from July 29 to August 17.

McCartan comes as the 28th artist in Desktop Residency’s ongoing project, following in the footsteps of Simon Whybray, Michael Manning and Emilia Bergmark among others.

The ordinarily material nature of McCartan’s work – who usually works with sculpture and painting on canvas – is transferred to the virtual realm with Desktop Residency; the bright, splashy colors of her canvas pieces remain but the folds of her pieces flatten into wallpaper, preserving texture in two dimensions.

See the Desktop Residency website to download. **
