Emily Ulmer is a postgraduate student at the University of Glasgow studying English Literature. She identifies as bisexual and this is the first time she has been part of an exhibition focusing on queer artists, which she is very excited about! She is an amateur artist who draws and paints as a form of stress relief. In undergrad, she acted as Deputy Editor-in-Chief of From the Lighthouse literary magazine and was a part of the Durham University Art and Poetry Societies. Currently, she is the secretary for Glasgow University Food Co-op and is working on a set of paintings based on the poetry of Sappho. She had taken a break from art during university but got back into it during quarantine, and recently started photography as well. The works in this exhibition represent her latest interest in landscape photography as well as some throwbacks to her favourite older pieces to demonstrate the progress of her work. The photographs are meant to be calming and a little melancholy, reflecting the mood of 2020, while the older artworks are more vibrant, joyful, and childlike.
