Statement of Work
Emily Evans Sloan is a multidisciplinary artist, born in Springfield, Missouri. She received a BFA in photography at Missouri State University and an MFA in photography at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Emily lives in Kansas City, Missouri with her husband and their 6 children.
The overarching theme to Emily’s work is about discovering and documenting the surreal yet glorious moments of everyday life that are often overlooked, discarded or hidden. She loves to capture emotions, not necessarily big and obvious emotions, but the subtle, the tiny, and the layers within us. She honors the unusual moments that reveal authentic emotions. The Trailer of Truth project is specifically designed to advance these themes through the exploration of the repressed realities of truth, perception, and reaction.
Emily is a recent Artist Inc Fellow (May 2015) and winner of the Artist Inc Advance “Audience Favorite Grant” for her project, “the Trailer of Truth” (December 2015.)
