A selection of powerful female paintings by Noosa, Australia-based artist Emma Sheldrake. She often explores the beauty of imperfection in her impressionistic pictures.
Bold, striking, spontaneous and captivating, Emma’s works reflect the fact that painting liberates her passion and energy. Em’s signature style drips with seductive intent, blending figurative art with the mischievousness of Pop Art and the subtleties of eroticism. Bold colour combinations, daring brush strokes, irreverent drips, and enticing eyes define the power of her images to seduce the onlooker. Largely influenced by her experiences in the fashion industry, her works are commentaries on how beauty is reflected in the media, its mesmeric portrayal, and obscured depths. The flawless beauty of her subjects seeps from the pages of stereotyped fashion magazines into an unbound representation of character, rich with personality and evocative imperfections.Emma Sheldrake
