Emma Alcock

26th February - 15th March 2008

Emma Alcock has lived and worked in London since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1992. She has predominately exhibited in London in solo and group shows and her work is in private collections all over the world. At first glance Emma’s paintings may appear simple, but quiet contemplation brings to the surface a wealth of meaning and suggestion. Painting from imagination, retaining only the essence of the physical subject, Alcock creates semi-abstractions compositions that are elusive and ambiguous: windows that are both open and closed, a brightly coloured flower drowned in darkness, or a reflection on a wall that captures a transitory moment in time. Shadows and silhouettes serve to create balances of colour and tone in subtle compositions of light and shade soft and strong. The effect can be radiant or muted, intimate or monumental.
