Emma Douglas

Emma Douglas (b. 1956, London, UK) lives in London and works from her SPACE studio in Hackney. Studied Fine Art BA at Middlesex Polytechnic (1976-79); Printmaking at Ecole des Arts Decoratifs Paris (1979-80); and MA Printmaking at the Royal College of Art (1980-83). Since the death of her son in 2010 her work has been in conversation with him - about the love and the loss that she feels and the grief that has engulfed her. The colours reflect the mood that she is in and the memories that she has and the sadness of a future without him. She has exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer exhibition (2016) and was selected for the Jerwood Drawing Prize (2015 and 2013). Select exhibitions include Redchurch Street gallery, London (2012); SPACE Open studios (2012); The Royal Academy; The Whitworth Gallery; The Hayward Annual; the Whitechapel Open; The Serpentine Gallery; The Mulhouse Biennale (prize winner); The Barbican Gallery; The Ljubljana Biennale; and the Flowers Gallery, London and New York. Her work is included in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum.
