Emily Patrick Exhibition

The English artist Emily Patrick has some impressive paintings online here. They’re impressive in an understated way. The paintings are mostly small, color is used conservatively, and the subjects include things like clumps of grass, eggs, and tree leaves.

But they’re paintings that cannot be mistaken for anything else. She’s a painter that loves paint and doesn’t mind letting the paint overpower the subject.

I love painters that can make any subject a good painting. They can make a dead rat or a sack of potatoes look good because they are not relying on the subject to create the work of art.

Emily Patrick is currently exhibiting at The Air Gallery in London until the 21st of this month. There’s also an interview with emily from a few years ago here.
