Since receiving her MFA from the Tyler School of Art and BFA from the Hartford Art School Weiskopf has been written about in Artnet, Gallerist NY, DNAinfo, the Contemporist, Art Nerd, the Hartford Current, the Brooklyn Rail, The Huffington Post and various blogs. Her NY D.O.T solo Public Sculpture exhibition of Unparallel Way has been written about in over 30 countries around the world and published in City Embellishment and Urban Design II among others and has since been acquired by the Bushnell Sculpture Park, Hartford CT and CT Governor Malloy's Residence on temporary loan. Weiskopf was nominated for the Rome Prize and has been awarded numerous fellowships and residencies including the Artist Pension Trust, Vermont Studio Center and the Wassiac Project. Her recent Solo Exhibition, Pixan Paths//Higher Roads in May 2016 landed her on a live TV interview with Bronx Net TV and in further publications with The New York Optimist, Artnet, Royal Flush Magazine and others. Weiskopf's works are represented in both private and public collections.
Emily Weiskopf’s interdisciplinary work explores the notion of various inter-connections in which we partake in consciously and unconsciously. She is interested in translating this by using line as extension of interweaving waves of energy that transmutes into real form. Her large-scale and site-specific works reflect both the surroundings and their context while asking the viewer to consider personal relevance to the power of infrastructure within our lives. Through imagination and selective perception she sees her work as metaphors to our relationship with the world around us – which is also what makes them personal.
Working freehanded, I often employ unconventional techniques and implementing a wide range of materials such as aluminum, plaster, cement, dry oxides, and dyes with methods from printmaking, sculpture and drawing to employ a multifaceted tactile surface, resisting categorization.
Weiskopf currently lives and works in Boston, MA.
