Emily Moore is a Scottish artist who paints mountainous and desolate landscapes. The artist uses acrylic paint, graphite and varnish on wooden panel. Emily plays with different textures, revealing and concealing the materials and mediums involved in her practice. The wood of the birch panels she…Show more works on, for example, is left bare in places and forms part of her compositions.
The artist trained at the Edinburgh College of Art, where she was awarded the Royal Scottish Academy Keith Prize for the best student work. During her final year she was selected for the Saatchi New Sensations Longlist.
After graduating, Emily was shortlisted as one of 10 finalists for the Griffin Art Prize. She showcased her work in an exhibition at The Griffin Gallery in London, where she was awarded the Griffin Art Prize People's Choice Award and a sponsored artist award. Emily has since shown her work internationally. She also exhibits regularly at the annual Royal Scottish Academy Open Exhibitions.Show less
"Emily’s unapologetically bold graphic works are daring in their use of found images, utilitarian birch panels, along with traditional gesso and varnish. These amalgamated images, using modernist architecture motifs alongside alpine landscapes to provide arresting works reminiscent of Ed Ruscha and Robert Rauschenberg. "
