My studio was due to be open again this year for the second time . However as with the rest of the world, I am now showing my real paintings virtually!
I have an exhibition currently hung at the Old Fire station in Oxford which you can see in the video tour above.
For more on the exhibition visit https://oldfirestation.org.uk/exhibitions/colour-into-abstraction/
For a peek into Emma's extraordnary studio visit www.estherlafferty.wordpress.com/2019/04/08/profile-painter-emma-davis/
My new paintings are a celebration of my love of colour, texture and form. I have tackled them with gusto, creating the first few images unsatisfactorily and then almost destroying them to allow me to free up and push them past the point of being something safe to something much more exciting. They are textured, overworked and rubbed and scratched back. Sometimes nothing of the starting image remains visible, I never know what the final image is going to look like until it appears!
I listen to music while I paint, the titles I have chosen are single words taken from the songs that have influenced me whilst in my studio.
