Emily Stapleton (nee Cooper)

Bath Spa University (BA Hons Fine Art Painting , 2011)

Emily was born in Buckinghamshire in 1988, spending most of her life in Devon and Cornwall. Graduating from Bath Spa University in 2011 with a 1st Class Ba in Fine Art. Emily current lives and works in the Lake District.

Emily paints the moods of mountains, the sea and the elements that continually exhaust them.  Her impactful landscape scenes are influenced by the emotions of the sky, the weather and the land.  The scenes explore how untamed nature can mimic the extreme emotional states of man and how our lives are synonymous with the exposed landscape, bare, brutal and bruised.

Rooted within the terms of Romanticism, with its validation of strong emotion as an aesthetic source; they attempt to capture the Sublime experiences of untamed nature and its overpowering qualities on man.

The works simplicity opens it up to an environment for the viewer to impose their own experience. The focus of the painting is the horizon and how the paint is blended into a controlled unified surface. This blurred horizon suggests infinity, creating a space where one part is part of the other, uniting.
