Original painting in oil on wood panel, presented in a simple wooden box frame in lime washed spruce.
"This is a painting of my children with their backs to me, watching TV and eating dinner. I am inspired by them daily and aim to paint scenes from my everyday life."
Familiarity invites us into the work of Emma Copley. Landscapes and domestic family life are painted with an expressive, impasto flair and flaunt a dexterous colour palette. The paintings seem like an extension of Copley, who uses memory as subject, reflecting on each scene as she paints - infusing each piece with emotional resonance. Interiors and exteriors are painted with the same intuitive handling and as such evoke a sense of belonging.
