Emily Powell

The Light Bright Flight of Springtime, 2022

Mixed media on canvas
150 x 100 cms
Framed size: 154 x 104 cms


This painting bursts with movement: Matisse-like birds and patterns swirl upwards, the swooping shapes of wings contrasting with the diamonds, triangles and flowers of the background. The green and yellow emanating from the birds – including a rogue green parakeet – lends a vibrancy to the canvas and hints at the springtime sun which radiates from above.

The patchwork of the intricately patterned background gives both the sensation of swooping over springtime fields, and a comforting domesticity and childlike exuberance. Bold and energetic, this painting is filled with a joyous sense of life and happiness.
