The Coastal Landscape of Hartlepool: From Inspiration to Abstraction
Emma Smith, BA (Hons) Fine Art Level 6
Hailing from Scarborough, North Yorkshire, Emma’s experience of the coastal landscape informs her experimental process-informed paintings.
In this article, Emma makes interconnections between the coastal landscapes of Scarborough and Hartlepool through large-scale vibrant and vivacious paintings that represent the thoughts, feelings and emotions found when immersed in the landscape.
Emma references her previous work, and the new in-situ painting ‘Shore’ she created in The Northern School of Art’s Student Union.
