Emily Nelms Perez’s work explores the complexity of human relationships, the longing for reconciliation, and the impressions those relationships leave on individuals, for good or ill.
She gives fragile and often non-verbal scenarios a physical form. Nelms Perez is most interested in subjects that appear emotionally void yet are physically present.
