Emily Powell | Dartington Trust Exhibition & Studio Visit

We are very excited to have visited Emily in her studio this week and see paintings for her forthcoming exhibition ‘The Fundamental Importance of Nature’ opening at the gallery on 10th June. We chose to stay at the Dartington Trust and on arrival headed straight to see Emily’s stunning exhibition of paintings made during her residency earlier this year.

Emily says ‘Darlington means so many different things to so many different people, the beauty is held in the relationship between people and place. Some people find bravery here, some seek quiet, I feel a deep sense of home here’


Emily’s impressive body of work illustrates nostalgia & freewill. She brightly captures hometown coastal views in Devon, motherhood, still life & nature in her own light – from parrots in the shower, tigers in the sky, seagulls with a political agenda, flamboyant floral arrangements, boats at sea in battleship form. Her imagination is endless, her curiosity infectious, freely exploring paintings, drawings, collages, sculptures, digital art, stop motion animations and more. The lively diversity behind Emily’s work is rightfully admired. Her fluorescent colour palette & fearless technique showcases liberty in the way she creates and exhibits. No surface, medium or space is impractical to her. By removing traditional boundaries in her work, Emily is proving herself to be a breath of fresh air to the art world.


Emily's solo show 'The Fundamental Imporance of Nature' starts here at the Sarah Wiseman Gallery on 10th June.
