Emily Weiskopf is an interdisciplinary artist currently living and working in Austin, TX. Weiskopf’s work explores ideas around flow, translating energy and rebuilding connections in an increasingly fragmented world.
By using line as a foundation she seeks to create physical representations of energetic waves and pathways like modern hieroglyphics to form interweaving abstractions that seek to remind us how to reconnect to our own personal infrastructures.
Influences of spirituality, anthropology and textiles can be seen throughout her work in an effort to understand the world in which every event is simultaneously psychical and physical. While the core of her work is sculpture, painting and drawing, she has expanded her body of work to include video and public installations.
Since receiving her MFA from the Tyler School of Art and BFA from the Hartford Art School, Emily Weiskopf’s work has been featured in Artnet, Gallerist NY, DNAinfo, the Contemporist, Art Nerd, the Hartford Current, the Brooklyn Rail and various blogs.
In 2013, the NY D.O.T commissioned Weiskopf’s first large scale public installation, Unparallel Way, which debuted in conjunction with the exhibition Brooklyn Utopias. Unparallel Way has been published in City Embellishment, Urban Design II and has since been exhibited at the Bushnell Sculpture Park, Hartford, CT and became part of CT Governor Malloy's Sculpture Grounds at his residence.
Weiskopf was nominated for the Rome Prize in 2011 and has been awarded numerous fellowships and residencies including the Artist Pension Trust, Vermont Studio Center and the Wassiac Project. Weiskopf's works are held in both private and public collections.
