Georgina Emmett

OCA tutor and assessor Bryan Eccleshall looks at the work of BA (Hons) Painting student Georgina Emmett. Bryan investigates how Georgina uses the shadows cast by trees as a compositional device. It reminds us that the shadows cast by objects are actually like objects themselves.

    Really interesting work – I found the shadows really facscinating when I was working on the tree project when doing drawing one earlier this year and I definitely agree that they are objects on their own – one particular tree I was sketching cast a long shadow like a large eerie spider!

    Lovely work. I particularly like the colours and the light behind the trees, which as Brian says, reminds me of stained glass.

    Well done Georgina, excellent work . An inventive and painterly response to the subject.
