Art Gallery, oil paintings, Art Exhibition
Alex Emsley re-discovers the timeless traditions of still life painting and portraiture, but does so in such a way as to contemporize these age-old genres. In his still life paintings, arrangements of random everyday objects are depicted in obsessive detail. Emsley’s particular acidic colour temperance transforms objects into uncanny visions of the banal objects that clutter our lives – “portraits” of objects in a stance of defiance, as though they could exist without the presence of human life.
