Cuyahoga Valley National Park

The cavernous cosmic highway keeps my little mouth shut.

While taking a walk through Cuyahoga Valley National Park, I was continuously distracted by the large highways that cut through the park’s most favorite trail.

They towered above me. They made me feel so small.

Using chunks of dried acrylic from my palette and yarn as texture, with meaty colors, I painted the highways through the monstrous lens I kept envisioning them as: cosmic horrors whose intent is unknown. What I do know is how meek I felt that day. A feeling I am accustomed to.

United States


Emma “M” Dailey is a junior at the Cleveland Institute of Art, double majoring in Painting and Sculpture + Expanded Media.

The core of Dailey’s work is human fragility, as they attempt to reason their way through this silly little universe.

Dailey’s work is often introspective. Dailey is a survivor of multiple instances of sexual assault, and their art is a vessel to communicate the anger and confusion that comes with such a title.

Dailey is also puppeteer and avid puppet designer, and hopes to one day spread their ideas about healing from such events through the art form.

They also hate the sun.
