Margaret Emsley

Margaret EmsleyWe are glad to host Margaret in our gallery, with her beautifully dramatic renderings of flowers. A highly skilled artist in both oil and charcoal, she has a knack for capturing the inevitability of transformation in nature.

Flowers as her choice of muse help Margaret to denote certain ideas and emotion.

As colours fade, and petals wither, Margaret uncovers a new sense of vitality in the flower that she so cleverly expresses with charcoal on paper. She finds this medium achieves metaphorical depth; it boldly explores the tension created between light and dark, and more figuratively, the interior and exterior of the self.

Turua Gallery currently boasts a select range of Margaret’s stunning charcoals.
