Her large scale and deeply romantic still life painting, titled Together, saw her win the EMSLA (Eutick Memorial Still Life Award) in 2014. This show represents part of her EMSLA winner’s prize.
Emily has just returned from her New York residency and is represented by Sophie Gannon Gallery in Melbourne. She is young, hip, talented and dynamic, with her own unique view of the world.
The other half of the Gallery is taken with an exhibition titled Gifts from your Generous FRIENDS.
This is an opportunity to see works purchased by the indefatigable FRIENDS of the Gallery who routinely purchase wonderful art from EMSLA finalists, as well as other notable still life paintings.
Their most recent gift is a remarkable painting by Tasmanian convict artist William Beulow Gould that was painted around 1840.
This work depicts the bounty of Tasmanian produce, a lobster, game, oysters, and eggs all in a classic still life setting. The ornate gold frame surrounding the work adds lustre to the painting despite its addition possibly 100 years after the work was painted.
