My Beautiful Fantastic
Emily Powell is a contemporary colourist painter whose work bursts with joie de vivre. Colour and creativity fill her paintings which span diverse themes, rampaging across the boundaries between observation and imagination. Powell's subjects surround her in life and include characterful animals, uplifting flowers, fishermen observed from her seaside window and the coastal landscapes of Devon. The latest direction Powell has taken is to develop complex abstracts using her exquisite understanding of colour. These genres combine to form a running monologue on what it's like to be a woman living in contemporary society.
