SWELL Artist of the day 
Emily Sorlien

I offer up death to the viewer as a perverse sort of gift, like a cat who brings home a dead bird to its owner. However, it is a palatable kind of death, a death experienced obliquely, without the burden that comes with actual death. A death cloaked in the guise of 'art' which allows us to stay at a safe remove. A death that is sometimes tragic, sometimes humorous and often theatrical. A beautiful death, I hope.
