Carol Emmas


I work in two ways, in the first instance, photographically from textures that have been affected by the elements (such as oxidised metals and peeling paint), or from the elemental (i.e fire, water and light). I further work with them in paint and pastel. The result is imagined abstracted images or landscapes that aim to harness ephemeral emotion rather than literal representation.

More recently, I have moved towards painting and paint the same way I photograph, which is to paint a landscape and obscure it so it becomes an abstracted representation of the original work.

My inspiration comes mainly from the sea and mountains. I have two separate bodies of work both which are shown in the studio. I work in a similar way across both which is to always capture the fleeting glimpse.
