Emma Dunbar

Emma's paintings have been painted in Hampshire and Cornwall. She gathers ingredients from the landscape to create colourful and recognisable paintings. 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. Her influences come from travelling in India, Cornish holidays, cats and children wandering onto wet paint, beautiful fruits in the greengrocer and her growing collection of cups, mugs and jugs. Emma promises a display of berries, fresh snowdrops and spring flowers.

Emma says: 'what excites me about making a painting is trying to capture the essence of a place, a feeling, a thing.' Graphic accuracy is not something pursued. The viewer is offered an edited version of the colours with flattened fruit, red and orange boats might be relocated next to each other to form stripes on a beach while bold bunches of flowers appear on what we know is a table or windowsill in the foreground. Emma describes her pictures as though they were a stage set: a jug of favourite anemones taking centre stage while other elements are set back in their plane like painted flats creating distant views.

Emma lives in Kingsley Common, Hampshire.
