Troy Emery is an artist based in Melbourne and has an art practice encompassing sculpture, painting, and drawing. He works primarily with textiles in a sculptural practice to produce animal-like forms. His artwork examines the discourse surrounding the delineation between fine arts and craft, as well as animals as both entrenched decorative motifs and tokens of ecological ruination.

Troy’s work is held in various private and public collections, including The National Gallery of Victoria, Art Bank Australia Collection, City of Townsville Art Collection, Goulburn Regional Art Gallery Collection, Deakin Art Museum, Macquarie University Art Gallery and Maitland Regional Art Gallery. Troy is represented by Martin Browne Contemporary gallery in Sydney, NSW.
