Urban Minimal - This style of painting is influenced by American realist painters who paint the quiet and the still, and revere a certain treatment of light and colour such as Edward Hopper, Jim Holland, John Register, Frank Hobbs and Contemporary Minimalists such as Christopher Benson.
I want to explore simplified forms, the interplay of the geometry of shadows and man-made structures and the tension between the 3D buildings and the 2D shadows.
"Emma's paintings paintings capture the fleeting moments of day and night in the Swansea streets. A very strong visual impact is derived from bold blocks of colours and an expressive palette that is widely used in modern art and pop art. I observe some tranquility and alienation in a busy city, almost draw a subtle connection to the pieces of Edward Hopper."
