Debut exhibition of Brooklyn-based painter Emily Furr on view at Sargent's Daughters

The paintings are small but impactful. Oil paint is slathered on with thick maneuvers, yet is controlled and detailed in its execution.


NEW YORK, NY.- Sargent’s Daughters is presenting Mother Lode, the debut exhibition of Brooklyn-based painter Emily Furr.

The term Mother Lode can refer to a both a principal vein of ore, and a rich source, both of which conjure something valuable. Furr’s work references the feminine archetype, which she seeks to restore by working against the current phallocentric age and issuing in a new yonic era. If a phallic signifier points to action, explosion, and fortitude, a yonic signifier points to the subconscious, the sublime, and the cosmic void. A phallus points outward, a yonis inward. If the phallic is physical, the yonic is celestial. It is a portal into the dark unknown.

The paintings are small but impactful. Oil paint is slathered on with thick maneuvers, yet is controlled and detailed in its execution. Compositions are tight with objects bouncing off the edges as a way to create object to space tension. The small size of the work asks the viewer to move closer to create an intimate experience.

Furr grew up on the Midwestern prairie and that landscape influences her choices in painting. The daytime colors of gold, cerulean, yellow and white oppose the nighttime colors of emerald, indigo and black. The enormous starry skies offered her a glimpse into the vastness of the universe.Through the small window of her paintings, Furr disassembles symbols from patriarchal systems to show the female aspect breaking through.

Emily Furr (b. 1978, St. Louis, MO) received her MFA from Hunter College, NY in 2018. This is her first solo show.
