Amber Emm's detailed photo realist works play with notions of focus, as she blanks out portions of her scenes to focus the viewers eye on the finer details we often miss. Her main inspirations are the seaside, coastal fauna and flora of New Zealand and domestic bouquets.
In the last 3 years Amber has focused her attention on the garden almost exclusively, as she has rediscovered a driving passion to recreate the pockets of beauty which are in our own backyards. Playing with contrast and detail and by eliminating the background and surounding areas, she finds she can achieve the desired focus she wants you to notice.
Amber Emm's fine rendering of details and lighting effects has led her to win numerous awards in the domain of photo realism. Awards include 2008 "New Zealand"s Favorite Artist" by Denise Robinson, Winner of the "People's Choice Award" at the "Nautical Art Exhibition", Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron and 2004 Winner of the "Laurie Coons Award for Landscape", North Shore Art Awards.
