Glanmor Glamour

by Emma Cownie

Unique art|18.1 x 15 in

I was struck by this retro designed building in Glanmor Road, Swansea, with it's amazing monolithic partition. It had a hint of Americana about it. In fact my recent project "Urban minimal" series of paintings is heavily influenced by American art and artists.

I have been influenced by the treatment of light and colour by American realist painters such as Edward Hopper, Jim Holland, John Register, Frank Hobbs as well as by Contemporary minimalists such as Christopher Benson, Leah Giberson, Tom McKinley, Jessica Brilli and Emmett Kerrigan. I aim to bring an American sensibility to a Welsh urban landscape
This “Cymricana” is rarely better exemplified than in this painting.

"Emma's paintings are lively and capture the fleeting moments of day and night in the Swansea streets. A very strong visual impact is derived from bold blocks of colours and an expressive palette that is widely used in modern art and pop art. The cinematic compositions and dramatic use of light and dark in her artworks, particularly in those night scenes where I observe some tranquility and alienation in a busy city, almost draw a subtle connection to the pieces of Edward Hopper.

Her depiction of pedestrians and streets of Swansea creates an enigmatic atmosphere which tempts the viewers for more"
