Emma Elliott presents new marble sculptures at on form 18

Emma Elliott is one of forty sculptors selected for on form 18, a biennial exhibition of sculpture in stone at Asthall Manor in the Cotswolds. She joins world renowned and upcoming sculptors, including Helaine Blumenfeld OBE, Peter Randall-Page RA and Rise Art Award winner Tom Waugh as well as other British and international artists.

Emma will be introducing Transient Global Amnesia, a new body of work created in response to the increasing number of endangered species facing extinction. The impermanence and fragility of the natural world and human behaviour are recurring subjects in her practice. All her marble is sourced in and around Pietrasanta in Tuscany where Emma joined a carving studio to produce the four sculptures in this series.

Founded in 2002 and now in its ninth edition, on form is the only exhibition in the UK dedicated exclusively to stone sculpture. Emma Elliott is only the second artist to be awarded an on form bursary, a scheme set up in support of young sculptors who work in stone. This year's prevailing themes around nature, ecology and displacement particularly resonate with her new series.

on form 18 further provides an opportunity to revisit Emma Elliott's Reconciliation. Based around a marble sculpture combining the stigmata of Jesus Christ and the tattoo of a concentration camp prisoner, the project comprises physical and digital elements and explores the perpetual extremes and contradictions of human behaviour. Reconciliation will be on display at St Nicholas Church, next door to Asthall Manor.
