Emily Simson is an Australian visual artist living in the New England area of regional NSW working in painting and printmaking. Her work focuses on the timeless bush landscape and the dramatic effects of sunlight. Painting with acrylic and experimenting with monotypes, relief prints and collagraphs the artist is interested in a structural interpretation of the landscape while capturing the fleeting, everchanging moments and colours of any ordinary day.
“The landscape, when it is bathed in sunlight and shadows captures my attention and I want to interpret the way I see it through paint and mixed media. My intention is to share the feeling of immersion whilst in a landscape, being drawn in and surrounded by the ever changing colours and light of the day.”
