Emma BenzThe Wall

26 March - 07 May 2022

Emma is a Gower based artist specialising in bright, bold watercolours based on natural and botanical subjects. Her background is in Painting Conservation and she still utilises these techniques in her work, most notably in the use of 24K gold leaf which is applied entirely by hand. 

In her paintings Emma explores our relationship to nature as well as to each other, both of which have become increasingly relevant during recent times. Emma uses watercolours in a non-traditional way, exclusively painting in Japanese watercolours and applying the paint in one continuous layer in order to maximise the impact of the palette. 

Emma has recently completed commissions for Fortnum & Mason and her work has been featured in The Times newspaper.
