Emily Blincoe is a Nashville TN and Austin TX based photographer with a knack for beautiful order. Blincoe has worked for a variety of commercial clients, but her composed ‘Arrangements’ are one of her most popular projects and incredibly satisfying studies of color, form and repetition.
There is something impossible to resist about the collections that Blincoe showcases in Arrangements. The order celebrates the difference in naturally occurring plants, fruits and vegetables (such as the photo below), or shines a light on different occupations (as with the Barber series above).
The attention to both the negative space as well as the individual elements is important to all of Blincoe’s compositions.
There is something about the image above - I think of it almost like creating a pattern or a surface design painting out of plants and flowers!
When Blincoe highlights the natural variety of her materials, the work feel reminiscent to me of Andy Warhol’s land sculpture - meticulous collections of leaves, twigs and pebbles.
One of Blincoe’s first series of Arrangements was the Sugar Series. Perfectly aligned gummy candies, lollipops, wrappers and PEZ dispensers on color coordinated backgrounds. While some have sworn off sugar in the New Year, these bright compositions can satisfy any sugar cravings!
