‘I’m influenced by modern painters such as David Hockney, particularly his portraits’ says 19 year-old Emma Price whose portraits and life
studies are on show at Art at The Chapel in Town Hall Square, Leicester until Saturday 11 August. Many of the paintings were produced during the Art Foundation year which Emma has just completed at Leicester College. In September she will be continuing her studies when she starts a BA in Painting at Edinburgh University.
Steve Hammond-Evans, artist in residence at Art at The Chapel, says “Emma is a talented young artist. Her work shows subtle use of colour and grand scale. The paintings only just fit onto our massive display screens – the subjects look at you with power and mischief.” The exhibition runs from 10 am to 3 pm from 4th to 11th August at Bishop Street Methodist Church where visitors can also enjoy refreshments at The Chapel Cafe.
