Biography

Emma Webster collapses representational and abstract elements in gestural paintings of landscapes and humanoid or animal forms, which disintegrate under her loose but energetic brushwork. “When form and color alone guided my paintings, I was shocked to see how much my emotions pervaded the canvas,” Webster has said. “It was only when I completely abandoned pictorial depictions of people that I realized how much of my work is about the sentiment behind relationships.”
