Emma Moir's paintwork is made up of thick impasto and dramatic contrasts of light and dark. Mostly landscape, her subjects stretch from the Cornwall coast to the River Thames. Those informed by real - life places tend towards the monochromatic with slight stainings of colour in an approach akin to that of Whistler. Also Turner's work might be seen as being invoked although the paint application tends to be a lot harsher and applied with a palette knife and colours are more acid: an altogether more contemporary effect. This artist's strong, vigorous gestural style is truly an appeal to the senses.
