Fine Art Publication
Created By Emily Storvold and Jessica Barratt
For the eavesdroppers among us, “Whatever You Say” is a collaborative piece between writer (Jessica Barratt) and artist (Emily Storvold) depicting a series of word-paired visual works that’ll leave readers feeling as if they’ve been “listening in” to the strangest of conversation.

Storvold is interested in how humans relate to the world. She aims to make art that not only reveals the connections and disconnections that we encounter, but reimagines those paths we travel in an abstract language.
