1979 - ?

Emma Green

Emma Jane Green was born in 1979, and grew up in Eyke and later Woodbridge, both in Suffolk. Emma studied Art and Design Foundation at Ipswich Art School before taking a Fine Art Degree in Hull. After graduating in 2001, she returned to Suffolk where she had a studio at Melton Road, Woodbridge by the river Deben. Being immersed in this landscape of marshy salting, it's scents and sounds, the muddy estuaries and beaches of shell and shingle provide an endless source of inspiration. Paint is applied freely, gestural, allowing thinner swathes of paint to run and dribble while other areas are more thickly applied. The layering of paint allows for some areas to be scraped back to reveal hidden colours, forms, and textures. Emma has exhibited at Red Gallery, Hull; The St Giles Street Gallery, Norwich; The Frame Workshop & Gallery, Ipswich; Thompsons Gallery, Aldeburgh; Peter Pears Gallery, Aldeburgh; Thompson's Gallery, London; Denise Yapp Contemporary Art, Whitebrook, Monmouth; Cambridge Contemporary Arts; Snape Maltings, Suffolk, and sometimes collaborating with other artists such as Colin Slee, Kate Giles and Emma Green.
