Emily Zielinski is a mixed media artist working in Pittsburgh. Emily graduated with a BA from the University of Pittsburgh in 2016 and has since had work displayed at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Downtown, Unititled Pittsburgh, Seton Hill University Gallery, La Prima Coffee, Deutschetown Music Festival, Frank L. Melega Gallery, 15 Minutes Art, the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, and the No Glass Gala. She works as an artist for the JCC and the Highmark Caring Place of Pittsburgh, and as an art therapist for Melting Pot Ministries. She believes art has the ability to reach into our souls, surpass the barriers and insecurities we hold within ourselves, and propel our inner-most, intangible feelings and experiences into the physical world.
I use the title Art Beyond the Barriers because it defines my artistic application, practice, and philosophy. Art transcends barriers within communities, beliefs, languages, and hearts. As a visual tool, art has the incredible ability to speak without the confines of words, dialect, or language. Art has the ability to reach into our souls, surpass the barriers and insecurities we hold within ourselves, and propel our inner most feelings and experiences into the physical world. Art becomes a visual conversation between hearts that can be spoken in complete silence. The act of creating art is not only a safe and positive outlet for expression, but is a poignant nonverbal language I use to communicate when words are inadequate. My work addresses memories, dreams, nightmares, mysteries, peace, and prayers. Ultimately, my paintings are a journal of healing, self-forgiveness, empowerment, and ultimately freedom.
