Emily Stevens is a contemporary painter whose work expresses energy and feeling in a manner that rouses an instinctive emotive response. Her poolside paintings are ephemeral and nostalgic, and capture the sense of a tranquil space into which the viewer is invited to immerse themselves.
Playing with the boundaries between drawing and painting, her work often uses collaged elements to link the two. Her sense for colour is instinctive and comes from her own experience of synaesthesia, in which sounds and tastes have their own corresponding colour identity.
Stevens was Artist in Residence at the oldest outdoor swimming pool in the UK, Pells Pool, Lewes. A self-taught artist, she is now doing an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art.
