Emma shows a corker at the Corke Art Gallery Aigburth next week.

Not to be missed next week will be a trip down to the Corke Gallery when Emma Tooth shows her solo work ‘Evolution’.

Emma is among the most exciting fine art portrait painters in England today.

Born in Cambridge, now based in rural Derbyshire, she exhibits her breathtaking oil paintings all over the UK and abroard.

This exhibition in Liverpool is powerful stuff, from a powerful emotive, talented artist that should not be ignored. Her depiction of “chavs” and “hoodies” in the style of Caravaggio and the Old Masters has gained her international attention.

This exhibition, brings together some of the artist’s best known paintings of recent years, including a number from her Concilium Plebis collection, showcasing them alongside some rarely seen pieces.

Concilium Plebis (for all you Latin linguists) is a clever collection of portraits of ordinary people, which were started in 2008 with Arts Council funding, in the style of Caravaggio and the Old Masters and which gained her the well deserved attention.

The whole exhibition on show at the Corke runs from March 2-23rd and offers an overview of the development of her earliest experiments with oils in the mid-1990’s and up to the present day.

An example of her robust work on show at Corke is Punch, created on a heavily distressed wooden panel which the artist picked up during a midnight ‘skip raid’. Haunting and memorable.

With lifesize, lifelike paintings, this is an exhibition you will not forget for a very long time!

The Private View for this new and amazing show by Emma is this Friday.

Corke Art Gallery Aigburth Road 2-5.30 Thursday to Sunday.
