ABOUT

Emma Coop is a British Artist who lives and works in London. She holds an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art and Design.

The drawings of Emma Coop are quiet and reflective, they invite the viewer to look and to be immersed in their detail. Repeatedly making drawings of the sea, Coop has a connection with late eighteenth and early nineteenth century Romanticism, whereby a landscape could summon a visual representation of an emotional state.

Coop’s work examines the nature of  ‘a moment’ or, by contrast, the lengthy unraveling of time. The drawings created depict split second moments, yet take considerable time to make. Her work slowly dwells on the assimilation of detail to the point where by the process of drawing becomes an mesmeric act in itself. The resulting artworks express this laboured process along with it’s inherent futility and desire.
