Emma Rose Art Works

Muddy says: Vibrant, colourful contemporary, semi-abstract and impressionistic paintings inspired by nature, memory and the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi (read on to find out what that is)

Award-winning artist Emma Rose left a career in London – theatre, film, dance and photography – to come and live and work in the village of Wellow, just outside Bath.  Artists are drawn to this place: Wellow’s the old home of pop-art king Peter Blake, the Brotherhood of Ruralists (of which Blake was a founding member) and sculptor Peter Watts.

Inspired by skylines – landscape, sky, sea – and by nature and memory,  Emma uses Indian Inks and acrylics to make vibrant contemporary, semi-abstract and impressionistic paintings full of colour and texture. I mean, just look at them. She’s also interested in the ancient Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi focused on accepting the imperfect and transient nature of life.

She’s exhibited all over London, including the Mall Galleries; 54 The Gallery, Mayfair; The Hepsibah Gallery in Hammersmith; and at The Other Art Fair in the East End/Bloomsbury. Also in Toronto, Bath and the West Country. Those awards? We’re talking Bath Life, Creative Bath and Independent Awards – ‘Best Artist’,  no less.

For a personal unique work of art that could become an heirloom (and tie in with the colour scheme in your home), you can talk to Emma about a commissioned piece. She can work from a photo, sketch or just an idea (she’s clever like that).

You can see and buy her paintings, limited edition giclée prints (framed and unframed), canvas prints and cards by appointment from her studio in Wellow or online.
