Fine artist Emma Doig is a figurative painter who mainly produces large scale oil paintings. Her expressive work combines technical skill with great energy, resulting in fleeting images of the body in movement. From within each painting, emerges a multitude of experimental contouring and paintwork; the inner becomes the outer through intuitive mark making. Her works derive from a personal compulsion to feel unbound from confinement.
She explains her work:
“I see transition as a relatable experience as everyone goes through a shift at some point. Whether this is an emotional or even physical shift, I communicate these ideas through the illusion of fixed motion or fixed state of being. The figure is captured in mid-air, a mix of colour, turbulent yet serene. Emotions are captured in a flux of movement, yet they are fleeting. Each mark in itself is an imprint of self-expression.”
Doig graduated from DJCAD in 2014 with a BA(Hons) Degree in Fine Art. She has exhibited throughout the UK and New Zealand.
