Biography of Emma Doig

Emma Doig graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone, University of Dundee with an Honours Degree in Fine Art. Her expressive work combines technical skill with great energy, resulting in fleeting images of the body in movement. She works mainly with large-scale figurative oil painting. She has recently graduated and explains that her work mainly focuses on ideas of transition. "I see transition as a relational experience as everyone goes through a shift at some point. Whether this is an emotional or even physical shift, I communicate these ideas through the illusion of fixed motion or fixed state of being. The figure is captured in mid-air, a mix of colour, turbulent yet serene. Emotions are captured in a flux of movement, yet they are fleeting"
