EMMA TOOTH JOINS THE GREAT & GOOD AT INGESTRE HALL

 

Emma Tooth has just successfully fought of stiff competition to to land a rather special commission.

 

Later this year she will be creating some new work which will eventually become part of Ingestre Collection - a collection of paintings spanning 4 centuries which were amassed by the Talbot family and which is still housed at Ingestre Hall.

 

Having been mesmerised by the 1619 portrait of Alathea Talbot, Emma will be looking particularly at their Tudor portraits to inspire the new work.

 

Watch this space for further developments...

NEW ESSAY BY JOHN DAVID EBERT

 

Culture critic, lecturer and author of a number of fantastically erudite but totally addictive books such as Art After Metaphysics has written a short but sharply illuminating essay on Emma Tooth's painting The Captive.

 

"Tooth has here painted a bleak portrait of the state of torpor of the contemporary human trapped inside the recoding of Plato’s cave as an electronic Aladdin’s cavern of endless visual stimulation that leads only to numbness, paralysis and inactivity." read more...

SAVE THE CHICKENS!

 

 

Chickens are a subject very, very close to Emma's heart, and she would like to reccomend the work of Little Hen Rescue to everybody! They are a not-for-profit organisation which works to rescue and rehome hard working ex-battery farm girls and give them the happy retirement they deserve.

 

Perhaps you have some space and could offer a new home to some hens, or if you don't have room you could easily sponsor one of their residents via paypal. Maybe you could volunteer to help there, or even offer a home to one of their Special hens. Click below to find out how you could help! Thank you : )

 

Please Support Little Hen Rescue!

UP CLOSE AT SIGNAL GALLERY

 

Emma Tooth presents a selection of brand new works from her forthcoming series, Scenes From a Breaking Art at her first group show at London's Signal Gallery. The show is entitled Up Close. Joining her in this "3 man show" (?) will be fellow figurative artists Caroline Burraway and Andy Kinsman.

 

The show has been selected by FirstThursdays.co.uk as one of June's 'must see' exhibitions: "Up Close will showcase three very different approaches to portraiture. All three artists will present intense and powerful work, with a considerable amount of technical brilliance and emotional power. This show demonstrates that the art figuration is not dead, but alive and kicking in Hoxton. "

As part of their Joseph Wright Festival and his 275th birthday celebrations and as part of the "Cultural Olympiad" in 2012, Derby Museum and Art Gallery commissioned the new work to be unveiled alongside their newly-refurbished Joseph Wright gallery on February 23rd 2012.

 

Following her dual exhibition with Joseph Wright in 2010, the Museum were keen to add a piece of Emma's work to their collection. They asked for something along the lines of her Concilium Plebis work, but responding specifically to the Museum's world-class Wright collection.

EMMA TOOTH: SHINING STAR OF THE NIGHT!

 

Thinkspace gallery's massive new group show, Picks of the Harvest, is now open! Emma accompanied her paintings to the USA and had a great reception.

 

"The shining star of the night was UK based artist Emma Tooth.
