This work was in a solo show which took place in January 2009 at the Da Vinci Art Alliance, in Philadelphia.
Extract for the show " November 2007 " from the Philadelphia City Paper, written by Jacob Dorof :
Da Vinci Art Alliance
Emma Salamon was born in France, raised in Italy and Argentina, and studied glass-blowing all across America — but it was one month in Philly about a year ago that inspired her latest work. "November 2007" offers a harrowing step inside a portrait of creative psychosis: Black glass bubbles connected by torn fabric appendages lie strewn across the floor, while a nearby wall is consumed by more than 200 sheets of ink-blotted abstractions. A typewriter on a desk gushes incomplete thoughts and papers next to a medicine cabinet nursing glass vials of thick ink. A hint of how she made it through the month: a glass-blown heart sitting next to the typewriter, filled with glitter and hope.
