Princess of the Riverina

Knowing Emma Beer is knowing her paintings. Each painting is a bi-product of her. Each an extraordinary pearl forged by a working process so focused, so honed, so expert and basically just completely natural. Form, colour, space, paint, matter, line – all these things are like oxygen to Emma, like making paintings is what she’s here for.

Hard-edged abstraction, the void, minimal space and line may be some of the fundamentals of her work, but these concepts are back-grounded by the surface, energy and nuance of her paintings, and they are anything but minimal. They are maximal, full of life, vibrancy and substance. Just like Emma.

You can check out her work really soon. Her show, Princess of  the Riverina opens 6pm April 2 and runs until April 9 at SEVENTH gallery, Melbourne.
