Artist Statement 

Emily Sara (she/her) is a queer, disabled, neurodivergent, artist, designer, and educator. Her practice incorporates disabled history and explores its contemporary anxieties, with a focus on accessible design and disability aesthetics. Drawing upon her foundation in advertising, she critically examines the limitations imposed by society on both of these practices. Emily employs a neurodivergent narrative, utilizing fragmented mediums to explore the dichotomies of organic degradation and the steel, titanium forms that make up her body. Her materials often include fractured cartoons, colors inspired by the Medical Industrial Complex (MIC), stim toys, safe food, and other medical detritus. Through these mediums, she explores concepts related to trauma, gravity, ableism, illness, and the absurdity of neurotypical rules.
