Emily Persson
Flora No Fauna

2020

$3,550

About

"Flora No Fauna" is an oil painting of the Australian landscape. Painted with a palette knife, the paint is laid on thick. Three dimensional texture of the paint creates realistic forms via shadow and highlights. A somewhat abstract method of painting creates a contemporary realist depiction of nature. A Foreground of green is met first with a verdant garden, and leads to a cliffside on the coast. The water reflects the clouded overcast sky, a deep sea of white paint. Framed in a natural wood floating frame. Unframed dimensions: 20 x 24 inches Emily Persson is a Melbourne based artist who has been creating oil paintings with a palette knife for three years. Emily is a multi-generational artist with roots in Brisbane, Australia. Although an avid hobbyist painter her whole life, Emily found her style and her new career in 2016 when she began painting landscape, seascape and floral still-life paintings inspired by her surrounds in Queensland. Emily decided in late 2017 that she would give away a successful corporate office job and pursue her life long dream of becoming a full time artist. She relocated to South Yarra in Melbourne and immediately began exhibiting across Australia at galleries such as the Moree Gallery and Satch & Co. Emily participated in many group exhibitions and fundraisers in 2018 including multiple shows in Melbourne, New South Wales and Queensland. Emily has gained most of her notoriety from her popularity on Instagram where she has close to twelve thousand followers. Emily’s art has trended worldwide on social media and she has become a pioneer and mentor for other artists trying to find their online groove. Emily has drawn the eye of some of Australia’s most sought after interior designers including Thomas Hamel, Nina Provan, Lauren Li and has had her work displayed in some of Australia’s biggest lifestyle magazines including Belle and Country Style. Influenced by master artists such as Frederick McCubbin and Arthur Streeton and by the contemporaries such as Prudence Flint and Rick Amor. Emily’s unique style is easily identifiable with the natural world as the natural world has given her so much happiness and joy. Emily believes that nature is there for people to admire and explore and she wants that beauty that we see outdoors to be seen magnificently inside on a canvas. All of Emily' canvas paintings are done by palette knife only. She uses the same palette knife as her Great Grandmother did to this day.
