Emily Pope - she/her, Emily Pope (b. 1993, Canada) is a painter living and working in Toronto, Canada. Her work explores the pairing of her body with symbolic elements and settings to amplify her experiences of womanhood. Pope's paintings aim to provide clarity and coherence to the intangible experiences of the human condition, presenting an inward life of daydreams on canvas. By centering herself as the figure in her art, Pope engages in a process of self-exploration and self-expression that creates a deeply personal body of work. Her work promotes introspection and reflection, with the paintings themselves serving as a means of connecting with the viewer.

Sens Gallery - Asian-Pacific area, "Gentle Touch" and "A Female Pain" collectively form a poignant exploration of touch as a profound and paradoxical force in human experience. The former delves into the coexistence of tenderness and potential pain, inviting reflection on the interplay of sensations in connections, while the latter captures the delicate essence of feminine resilience, using a solitary tear drop on a pearl to illuminate the strength found in vulnerability. Together, these artworks underscore the transformative power of tactile experiences on the fabric of our emotions and connections.
