Emily Stedman: Captured Moments – An Artist`s Slice Of Life
530 W 25th St, New York
April 25 – May 13, 2017
Emily Stedman’s watercolor paintings capture emotional stories based on observation of the natural world. The stories are a mix of fantasy and realism and concern the people and places she may have met along the highway of life and who are in situations anyone can relate to. She relies on collective memory, the everyday world and her sketchbook for sources.
The current exhibition at Noho-M55 Gallery explores our longing for a sense of coherence in a changing world. Through the use of transparent watercolor, compositions are created from photos, on-site sketches and paintings. Emily's use of a natural palette and summer colors and her heart felt artistic approach creates lively and timeless visual narratives.
