The na­ture of beauty

Pho­to­graphic artist Emma Bass is set to present a provoca­tive new col­lec­tion ex­am­in­ing the na­ture of beauty. Bass, whose work Hy­drangeas 8.50am from her Im­per­fect Se­ries was se­lected for the Sum­mer Ex­hi­bi­tion at the 2016 Royal Academy in Lon­don, will re­veal Em­bel­lish at Smyth Gal­leries in Auck­land's St Marys Bay on Novem­ber 9. While exploring Lon­don’s Na­tional Gallery, Bass be­came fas­ci­nated by the still life flo­ral works of the Dutch mas­ters. Look closely and you’ll no­tice she even hand-painted tulip petals to re­sem­ble ex­tinct Dutch va­ri­eties.

Em­bel­lish is open to view at Smyth Gal­leries, 41 Jer­vois Rd, Auck­land, from Novem­ber 9-30.
