About Emma-Leone Palmer
ELP is an international British figurative painter who explores the complexity of the human mind in her hypnotic original oil paint- ings. Graduating in 2005, Emma moved to Umbria in Italy, where her love of figurative painting blossomed at a studio once used by the High Renaissance painter Raphael. She went on to hold a soloexhibition at Watts Gallery, win the London Contemporary Art Prize, appear on Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year, where she painted the film star Richard E. Grant and became known for her iconic ‘Paint-Play’ series. With a celebrity following, her work is owned by the Brit- ish Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies. Amongst numerous online articles, she has appeared in Fine Art Collector magazine, Emboss and Mayfair Times. The contempo- rary painter’s solo show Afterglow
‘Afterglow is a body of some of the most exciting and energising work in oils I’ve seen since my early days at Art School in the 1990s. Emma has absolutely captured the NOW but done it with the flawless technique of a Clacissist’
As seen in the Renaissance, science and art go hand in hand with our evolution. The concept is for artist ELP to paint in the traditional medium of oils over a period of one month, a large, site specific ’Afterglow’ canvas in an empty commercial unit in Addlestone Surrey. The painter will be surrounded by interactive lights and her motion mapped. En- abled by technology, she will be lit up with pulsing colours so that the space will change according to how the artist moves throughout the painting process, creating an immersive experience, heightening the mood, flow-state and perceptions of both artist and viewer whilst highlighting the space she inhabits. This will create a ‘light record’ enveloping the finished painting in the final view.
