Emma Caldow is an emerging Scottish Artist, based in Inverness, who focuses on Site-Specificity and Sustainability.  

 “Working on beaches across Scotland, I am currently exploring the interaction between the Cyanotype Process and Environmental Elements, to create subtly conceptual artworks that capture the Scottish Coastline. The work is made on location, by working with salt water, sand, and wind on the beaches of Scotland. Each work has been formed by exposure to the rushing tide, flickering sun and blustering wind, to truly capture a moment in time.

The cyanotype medium is non-toxic and by utilising the natural environment as the secondary medium, the works are sustainable and environmentally conscious. It encourages the implementation of more sustainable and environmentally conscious methods and materials within Fine Art. It also provokes an appreciation of the beauty and power of the natural environment, which in turn deepens humanity’s consideration of these environments.”  

Emma graduated from Gray’s School of Art in 2022. During her degree she was the recipient of various internal and external accolades. Additionally, she was shortlisted for the Generator Projects’ Graduate Showcase and was selected as a finalist for the Visual Arts Scotland Graduate Showcase. Since graduating, Emma has exhibited in solo and group shows throughout the UK.
