Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy night, 2016. Artwork created by Emma Beer

Emma Beer

Emma Beer is an abstract painter who looks closely at the process of shifting the third-dimension and unfolding it onto the picture plane and visa-versa. She can be placed somewhere between colour field painters and abstract illusionism.

Emma Beer has received The Contemporary Art Space Residency and has been beneficiary of The Spanish Embassy Torres Scholarship. She was awarded the Canberra Artists Patrons Organisation, London Emerging Artist Award, and as a result in 2014 Beer had her first international exhibition Princess of the Riverina at the Reading Room in London. In the same year she was awarded Highly Commended as a finalist for The Brett Whiteley Traveling Scholarship. Most recently, Beer was a finalist for the Fremantle Print Prize at the Fremantle Arts Centre, and was a nominee for the Redlands Emerging Artist Art Prize. Her work is included in collections such as The Australian National University, Drill Hall Gallery; The Embassy of Spain, Australia; The National Gallery of Australia: Megalo Archive Collection and numerous private collections throughout Australia, Singapore, Scotland, England, France and Spain.
