We are delighted to welcome Emma Dunbar to the gallery for her much-anticipated 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 life over the last twelve months that have transformed the way we live. Emma brings beauty and colour to everyday life - even in hard times. Emma enjoys and cherishes her companions, Eric and Ian, her brown cats, and Simon the dog. They are portrayed next to delicious fruits from the greengrocer and her ever growing collection of mugs and jugs with flowers from the garden. They all come joyfully together to celebrate the ordinary.
