Baltimore-based artist Emily C-D assembles gorgeous, colorful installations and sculptures out of rusted metal, discarded machinery, old snow shovels, and whatever discarded junk she can find, wiring it all together mostly with found materials. She often incorporates painterly components to these pieces, channeling her abilities as an illustrator to add little flourishes — stylized figures, flowers, butterflies, and abstract textures and shapes — to change the nature of the dangerously gnarled materials she works with. C-D also works in inner-city communities around the city, often collaborating with children to create similarly motley murals that often spill off the walls onto the streets and pavement.
