Emily Moore is a Scottish artist who paints mountainous and desolate landscapes. She uses acrylic paint, graphite and varnish on wooden panel. Emily plays with different textures, revealing and concealing the materials and mediums involved in her practice. The wood of the birch panels she works on, for example, is left bare in places and forms part of her compositions.

“Up until now my work has had a strong autobiographical aspect with the subject matter and images taken from my own trips and experiences. I have been drawn to mountainous, desolate landscapes, which frequently make an appearance within my work. In contrast to this natural environment I am attracted to the geometric shapes and lines found within man-made structures. My work explores the tension between these two conflicting themes, attempting to find an overall balance within the final composition. My practice has encompassed a range of media: painting; photography; printmaking and installation, as a way of exploring these themes.”

She trained at the Edinburgh College of Art, where she was awarded the Royal Scottish Academy Keith Prize for the best student work. Emily has exhibited throughout the UK, New York and Paris, and has been shortlisted for the Griffin Art Prize in 2013, Saatchi Gallery’s New Sensations 2013 as well as the Woon Foundation’s Painting Prize.
