The cinema screen and the world of advertising inform the compositions of Emma Harvig. Her images appear like ambiguous stills taken from an unexplained narrative, with their highly stylised and picture-perfect surfaces using the techniques of advertising to lure the viewer’s eye. The series Le Ski features bizarrely-cropped Alpine scenes which become alluring vignettes.
