There is something therapeutic about Martine Emdur’s ocean scape collection. Perfectly rendered bodies submerged in the ocean, light refracting through the water, a calm glistening surface. Looking at her large-scale paintings you can’t help but feel like you too are immersed in the tranquil water.
Hanging an Emdur above a dining table, in a living room space or entrance (space permitting, most paintings are almost 2m wide) would create instant interior calm.
I am not the only one with this opinion; self-taught Emdur has been one of Sydney’s most prevalent and successful artists for some time now. Her work is in constant demand and has a waiting list of over 2 years at the Tim Olsen Gallery.
Emdur’s latest exhibition (the first since June 2010) opens at the Tim Olsen Gallery Woollahra, April 4th – 22nd.
