Samantha Emery. Expressing the Aesthetics of Life

Drawing on the quiet power and majesty of the natural world, Samantha Emery’s paintings are open and direct, inviting viewers into a surrealistic world of whimsy and color as she builds an emotional dialog into the complexity and wonders of life and light.

Samantha EmeryThroughout Emery’s crisply detailed portraits and playfully fanciful journeys into her imagination, there is an enduring aesthetic of beauty and joy, skillfully illuminated with an organic realism. Each work is a story, an intangible experience and action made visible through the simple intricacy of Emery’s naturalistic painting. The artist creates her works in oil or acrylic paints on canvas, occasionally adding touches of crayon, but more often immersing herself in the smooth perfection of her detailed brushstrokes.

Born in London and of British and Canadian descent, Emery has travelled extensively throughout Canada, the United Kingdom and South America and is now living in Bodrum, Turkey. She earned a degree in Ceramics and Design from Central St Martins College of Art and Design and studied at a tutorial College in Oxford and Amersham College, Buckinghamshire.

About the Exhibition

In Evolving Abstraction, these artists reflect the beauty and complexity of the world they see through taking a step back and portraying them through the lens of artistic vision rather than with representational accuracy. Often experimental, the works are innovative in their quest to find the best tools and techniques to convey the idea that exists in the artist’s mind and share it with an audience hungry for a fresh perspective on what they see every day.
