Emily Besser is a painter, living in the inner-west of Sydney and working from a home studio. She completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts with First Class Honours in Painting at Sydney College of the Arts in 2001, and has intermittently exhibited her work since then. After a 10 year adventure as a lawyer, Emily has returned to a daily practice of painting.
Emily’s abstract and gestural works are in conversation with a diverse range of ideas, sometimes relating to religiosity, spirituality and belief, or psychology and anthropology, or the sedentary arts of gardening, child-rearing and home-making. But mostly the conversation returns to the practice of Painting itself.
