Having worked as a marine biologist prior to studying painting, Emma’s work is embedded in the natural environment with particular interests in light, photosynthesis and plants. In this body of work she considers the complexity of the earth in an effort to refind an eden in our time and responds through drawing, painting, analogue photography and embroidery. The title of the show refers to John Milton’s poem, with its call for peaceful love and joyful determination to effect a constructive repair of the mistakes of the past, winning by creative conquest what man has lost by fallacy. The works are largely informed and inspired by the garden at Overbeck’s in Salcombe and the wilds of the surrounding coast.
