WHAT'S BEHIND THE BLACK DOOR THIS MONTH?
FOREVER IN BLOOM |
Amber Emm has become well known for her dramatic and detailed photo realist works that play with notions of focus. Emm blanks out portions of her scenes to focus the viewer's eye on the finer details we often miss.
Over the years Emm has pushed the scale of her work as well as the intricacy. Her larger than life bouquets depict flowers in varying stages of bloom, freezing them in time for our contemplation.
Recent travels abroad to Europe have provided Emm with new inspiration, resulting in works such as this impressive canvas French Light.

CASTING FROM NATURE |
Lee Howes is a technically finessed glass artist who creates works using the techniques of casting, fusing and leadlight.
Howes has been working with glass for over 28 years. Her works are identifiable for their refined finishes and organic forms.
Howes makes references to coastal scenery, changing environments and natural processes. Her cast pieces are reminiscent of deep structures such as glaciers, rock layers or stratum. These references are enhanced by the rich colours incorporated in the glass.
