Original painting in oil on wood panel.
"I paint these glimpses into my everyday life quickly. In this painting I was trying to explore colour and wanted the yellow ribbon and butter to be the main focus."
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.
