William Emmert, “Untitled (Ladder, Dune paperback, 4 ft. level, measuring tape, utility knife, sharpie, screws),” Painted paper sculpture, 29in x 47in x 29in, 2014.
William Emmert creates work that lives in a space between the escalating expectations of the viewer and the ever decreasing plausibility those expectations will be met. His pieces can either beg for appreciation of detail or are easily melded into the surrounding environment, and within these carefully crafted objects, an obsession with individuality and confusion with identity can be found. “Dare to Dream” is a body of work about the struggle to make a body of work. William reflects on the desire to create and influence as an artist, while weighing his fear of losing motivation and wanting to drop things all together. William is a graduate of CCA whom lives and works in Oakland, CA.
