ARTIST EMMA BASS HAS A COLOURFUL, DISTINCTIVE TAKE ON FLORA, PHOTOGRAPHY – AND WELLBEING
Emma Bass has a well-established career in commercial photography but with her floral portraiture collections, she has carved a niche in the fine art world. Whilst flowers are a universal language, her themes provide a modern narrative which make the works contemporary.
Not only are Emma’s works striking in oversized print formats but they are translatable onto glass and make stunning light boxes.
Employing a rainbow of palates (from ethereal pastels to striking bold shades) and unique floral arrangements, Emma’s artwork addresses the universal need for beauty and well being. Her collections can be viewed here.
It’s worth noting that there is now much scientific evidence that floral imagery not only enriches any environment they are placed in but they provide joy, comfort, invoke memories and speak the universal language of love.
Emma invites you to collaborate on a unique commercial project, or talk to her directly on how one of her existing pieces could help bring life to a project you are working on.
