Really chuffed to see Emily Speed chosen at the Guardian’s Artist of the Week this week. Of course, we spotted her, like, ages ago. We’ve long had a soft spot for Speed’s fragile exploration of the places we inhabit, and her delicate and beautiful art books. “Liverpool’s a great place to be an artist,” she says. “There is an energy and drive at a grass-roots level that makes the city a really exciting place to be.”
Emily’s currently exhibiting the wonderful Make Shift, at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, until September.
Well done, Emily!
