In this photograph we see not the final result, but a moment captured when the artist, Emily Hill is at an artistic crossroads. Here we see a porcelain bowl placed inside a kiln, there are still pencil markings on the bowl which will burn off in the firing. The cobalt will become one with the porcelain and hopefully the blue will stand out against the white background.
With the temperature set to reach 1280 degrees Celsius, even the artist does not know exactly what the outcome will be.

During the creationary process of painting the collection of watercolours for Emily Hill’s upcoming exhibition, Jason Daniels interrupted from time to time to take a photograph or two. These photographs depict pencil marks on ceramic bowls or even notes upon watercolour paper.
One or two of these shots will be on display during the Exhibition. Jason says that he wanted to capture the holistic approach to this exhibition where all of the art works on display will have meaning to each other.

Two recently completed Watercolours will be included in the Exhibition coming up in May. One is a still life of a flowing fabric of silk decorated with butterflies and parasols and the other is a still life of a collection of delicate porcelain tea cups all balanced upon each other.
Both paintings display vibrancy and colour that is a hallmark of Emily’s watercolour work. Sneak preview of both pieces can be seen here. When the exhibition is on, photographs of the whole paintings will be on display in this blog.

Speaking with Jason Daniels who photographed behind the scene shots for the upcoming Watercolour Exhibition by Emily Hill, he explains the history behind this photo of a fish.
“Emily has always worked with lino for making prints and one day she found this new material which is kinda like a white rubber that you can carve and print along the same lines as lino. It is easier to get a sharper edge but it doesn’t feel as organic. I wanted to capture for the exhibition, that it is not simply about the watercolours in this exhibition, there’s a story on how many of the still lifes were created.”

In haste and nervousness and a supply of misinformed information! It is with regret that I say that there are some mistakes on the Invite/Flyer for the exhibition and in particular when you can meet and greet the Artists involved.
So, Saturday is the correct day and the date should read the 19th of May and it will be at 12 noon!
Please, my apologies, the butterflies are flocking to my stomach as it is.
