Emmylou creates idealistic images, then deliberately chooses to ‘spoil’ them with the addition of her signature ‘drips’. We are being given her view of the world; beauty is distorted by human emotion; what may look outwardly perfect has become damaged, making a beauty of its very own.
As both creator and ‘destroyer’ of her images, she wields the ultimate control and forces you to see that beauty in the world has become subjective to our emotions.
Emmylou uses oil paint on canvas and exhibits at galleries in the UK. Her next show will be at Curious Duke Gallery from March 19th - April 12th.
