We are delighted to welcome Emma Dunbar back for her much anticipated new solo exhibition. Emma paints in Hampshire and Cornwall. Her attraction to colour and the decorative qualities in everyday objects provide the foundation for her art.
Emma works mainly on board in acrylic, occasionally incorporating collage with gold and silver leaf. Her training as a printmaker is evident both in the use of blocks of flat colour and in the way she scratches through surfaces to reveal pre-laid colours underneath. This exhibition draws inspiration from daily walks and recent trips to Greece, Iceland and Austria. Beautiful fruits in the greengrocer, her brown cats, Eric and Ian, and Simon the dog, next to her ever growing collection of mugs and jugs with flowers from the garden, all come joyfully together to celebrate the ordinary.
