Emma Dibben

Emma Dibben is influenced by the natural environment surrounding her. Growing her own fruit and vegetables has been the source of inspiration for many of Emma’s studies and provoked her to look deeper into the internal mechanisms and structures of the plants. Drawing from scientific sources Emma has become fascinated with the internal mechanisms of the botanical environment.

With her latest body of work Emma departs from her well-known commercial practice to delve deeper into the substance of her subjects. Drawings document her time spent outdoors, on her allotment and walking in the parks and woods around Bristol. It is also this world that inspires her larger paintings. These bigger works are an expression of the internal, either by attempting to produce a personal response to the outer world or, by looking at her subjects dissected and through a microscope.
