Emma Green in our March Exhibition

For our March exhibition at cambridge contemporary art, we are very excited to have new oil paintings by Emma Green.

Emma Green is a contemporary landscape painter based in Woodbridge, Suffolk. Following a Foundation course in Art and Design at Ipswich Art School, Emma went on to do a Fine Art Degree in Hull. After graduating in 2001, she returned to Suffolk. Working from her studio by the river Deben, Emma is strongly inspired by the coastal environment around her. Being immersed in this landscape, Emma creates semi abstract paintings exploring its wildness, its remoteness and the evocative, fleeting changes in light and atmosphere.

Emma’s new collection of work for spring continues to draw upon the changing light and atmosphere of the river Deben. Every hour, every day, the clouds, sunlight, rain or mist alters the landscape below, the trees along the shoreline, the mudflats and the surface of the water at high tide. Emma works in an intuitive way, always exploring the material qualities of the oil paint, adding texture inspired by the plants along the tow path, the flocks of wader birds that fly up or patterns and debris from old boats left in the mud.

Emma Green is coming to the gallery for an informal meet & greet on Sunday 18th March . The event is free, but we kindly ask to register here.

This free exhibition runs from 3rd - 25th March 2018. We are open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5.30pm and Sunday from 11am to 5pm.
