Artist's Statement:
Ramsgate based artist Emily Tull graduated from Kent Institute of Art & Design in 2000. Since then, she has exhibited in London, Birmingham and regularly across East Kent in group and solo shows. My inspiration comes from many sources including Lucien Freud, Francis Bacon, Spike Milligan, Tim Burton, Cindy Sherman, fashion magazines and the Pre-Raphaelites. The work covers a range of subjects based upon everyday life and mythology. I am obsessed with faces.They show a person’s life, and can look different on a daily basis, a perfect canvas to convey different sides of your character. But more than this my fascination is with the colouration and fragility of skin and within my portraits I strive to bring these issues across. My concern is more with the flesh then the actual likeness. Predominantly portrait- based, each painting captures a moment in time where beauty blurs with the grotesque. From the ‘ugliness’ of meaty new-born babies, to the compelling, uncomfortable sexual qualities of sirens. Many of the images are severely cropped and large in scale to enhance the confrontation. The faces are exposed to close scrutiny, emphasising the fragility of the face and person. As we gaze intently at them a combination of senses unfold and question. This questioning is the most important factor of the work, from the everyday issues of beauty being skin deep to a beautiful woman becoming a freakishly bizarre creature. Drawing and mark making play a significant role, repetition of marks, layering on different colours. This can be a violent process, pressing paint through fabric, manic stitching – quick actions due to a short time-scale. These 'routines' and combinations of materials trace my thoughts and fixations of the paint/skin and lead to an ongoing exploration of abstraction.In the latest sewn pieces, sewing takes the place of drawing, abstracting the face, breaking down the features to a more vulnerable state, with the thread melting into the delicate ‘skin’.
