Emma Dunbar - colourful corners
20 April - 14 May
‘Colourful Corners’ is a new collection of paintings by Emma Dunbar which feature the still lives, dog walks and Cornish
harbours which she has become so well known and widely collected for.
Emma’s compositions of gathered and arranged ingredients – glimpses of journeys, patterns from familiar settings and objects collected along the way – create images that communicate the richness of the original source of inspiration.
Emma Dunbar was born in 1961 and received a degree in Fine Art Printmaking, West Surrey College of Art and Design in 1984. Since graduating, she has worked as a full time artist.
“What excites me about making pictures is trying to capture the essence of a place, a feeling, a thing. I am attracted to vivid colours and the decorative qualities in everyday objects. My influences come from travelling in India, Cornish holidays and the chaos of cats and children wandering onto wet paint.”
