Aphra Shemza is a London based multimedia artist exploring the impact and legacy of technology in our world. Working with abstraction, interactivity and light, Shemza combines traditional sculpting techniques with the latest technology to create her work. Shemza’s work is multidisciplinary making reference to Modernism with a renewed optimism.
Solutions for a Sustainable Art Practice was created in response to the Art Council’s Developing Your Creative Practice Grant. Over the course of the next three months Shemza will undertake an artist development program pursuing a focused investigation into finding practical, sustainable alternatives to the materials she uses to make her work.
