Emily Jean Melville Little
 Landscapes

 

 

Although inspired by “places seen” or “spaces experienced”, the Landscapes, especially in their final execution in the studio, have more to do with what is not perceived by the eye.

The process used to create  the collage landscapes - layer upon layer of colour and paper, each intervention influenced and effecting the other - is analogous to the formation of the natural world of molten mass, rock and earth, the many strata of which accumulatively make up the earth’s surface.

The painted landscapes show the attractive and repellent, the peaceful and unsettling, the contradictory forces of Nature itself. The repetition of strong verticals and horizontals  are limitation and the limitless, the barriers and ramps of our physical and mental spaces. The eye fleets across the picture plane to the rhythm of colour, tone and texture, unable to rest at any one point.
