Since February of 2016, Art in the Afternoon has been a monthly showcase for Iowa City area artists to present their artwork and display their skills. These programs are free and open to the public. This summer we will add to the growing list with four remarkable artists.
5/19: Emily Jalinsky
Addressing the state of mind in which art is made and how art affects a viewer's mental state is one of Emily Jalinsky's main objectives with her delicate works on paper, assemblages, and "printstallations." Emily uses her artwork to bring a hyper-awareness to the swings of the mind and body. She engages with mindfulness as a meditative act in the studio and visually depicts mindfulness in the body and surrounding spaces through organic forms and repetitive patterns. The borders between inner and outer landscape, material and immaterial become intertwined. Lichen, a symbiotic and slow-growing organism, is used as a symbol of resilience and continual growth, while patterns of gold and circular radiating forms suggest a state change in perspective and awareness.
Emily works in both printmaking and mixed media processes with a specialty in intaglio copper etching, watercolor, embroidery, and drawing. Pieces may be bound or layered together to create larger compositions, assemblages, and installations. Emily received a BFA in printmaking in 2012 with an emphasis in intaglio etching and expanded media from the University of Kansas. She is an active artist and arts organizer living in Iowa City and is currently the IC Press Co-op Program Coordinator at Public Space One.
