Emma Gale's art rewards a literate viewer and playful attitude. Richly allusive, her collages are a masterful synthesis of energetic line and mosaic-like surfaces. In her portraits, costume and coiffure are as important as her celebrity subjects' visages. "I like to play with these portraits - maybe like a kid plays dress-ups, I treat them like mannequins," offers Gale. Shapes cut from glossy fashion and art magazines suggest a simultaneous celebration and light-hearted rebuttal of contemporary modish trends.
