Emily Heath

One Fine Day, 2023

100 × 77 cm
I’m constantly fascinated by my emotional connection and response to inanimate objects and familiar spaces and enjoy that the still life genre is a way of exploring the intimacy of the everyday. Painting is a playful exchange between me and the canvas and I enjoy walking a line between representation and abstraction, forever in pursuit of capturing that inexplicable emotional response that is so time and place specific that it only continues living inside the painting.
Emily Heath is an emerging artist living and working in Sydney, Australia. She has studied Anthropology, History and Fashion Design and is currently undertaking a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the National Art School. Emily’s painting practice focuses on emotions and memories associated with objects, flowers and the places we inhabit. It is a practice she uses to make sense of and explore the world around her and to examine her inner emotional world. Emily passionately investigates composition and colour, creating works driven by intuition and using expressive, bold brushwork to balance figuration and abstraction.
