All enamoured by Emily Besser on this Monday night. Because, lordy, the world keeps coming. After following along on her Instagram (another reason I just love the medium), I was very pleased to find a write-up over on The Design Files.
Amber Cresswell Bell puts it so beautifully: It is sometimes easy to pass off abstract art as ‘easy’ – especially when it looks random, scribbly and spontaneous, but it takes discipline, a practiced hand and a keen understanding of medium to really make a painting sing. Emily ‘anchors’ her works by giving them a title, but it is her fascination with the process – the accidental marks, or unconscious decisions made about colour, line and shapes – that incite the evolution of her signature style.
