New Blood Art Statement

Emma Hartley draws influence from the world around her to produce stunning works of ethereal, emotionally charged, beauty. The ambiguous forms and misty, melting planes are somewhat similar to the void-centred iconography of the Japanese ShÅ«bun school of painting. Indeed, the pictorial language of Hartley’s work appears to embrace fluid space, expanding and contracting throughout the picture plane. Emotive clouds of colour and inky evanescent planes ebb through the image evoking instinctual responses. Both her figurative and landscape-based works resist clarity, remaining mysterious and profound, and open only to emotional interpretation. 

Artist Statement

In my practice, I aim to create ethereal contemporary images. I want to portray the atmosphere, the light and place that the ordinary eye senses, but rarely differentiates from more representative perspectives. My paintings feature landscapes, people and abstract concepts that draw the viewer into the world of feelings, emotions and instincts. This world is accessible and appealing and still gently challenging. I want to reveal the drama and beauty of reality, through the surreal lens of emotional perception.
