The artist from Australia creates bright portraits of girls, as if proving that everything is easier in the world than it seems.

Emma Uber (Emma Uber) has an incredible talent to paint faces, opening in front of our eyes the brightest canvases, which are full of wild colors: from yellow to red and fiery red, with an admixture of blue and pale blue. You look at them and see the light that is pouring from the inside, illuminating everything outside, but you immediately notice a pattern that in places, in the eyes of some characters, an internal black and white drama skims hidden under layers of multi-colored paints.

Someone who doubts Emma’s professionalism will say that she draws incredibly unpretentious portraits that even children could handle. But the point is that everyone expresses himself as best he can. For some, these are complex pictures with many intricate plot lines, for others, philosophical motives and deep meaning, without which life is not life, but the world is not peace, but for Uber these are childishly primitive faces, and in some places same type in their expressions.

She does not seek to convey all the correctness and expressiveness of features and forms, referring to realism, close to reality, on the contrary, the artist simplifies everything as much as possible. After all, the main component of her works are emotions, even if they are not sufficiently pronounced, but very remarkable and characteristic of girls who have fallen into thoughtfulness.

“Once I caught myself thinking that I was losing an emotional connection with what I was doing. For a very long time, I painted faceless figures and body parts, and despite the fact that they were beautiful and elegant, however, life and energy were not felt in them. Therefore, one day I tried to write a self-portrait in order to somehow get out of the uncomfortable “comfort” zone. So my new direction was born in the form – contradictory and requiring an emotional response, ”says Emma about her work.
“Most often, I paint portraits of familiar people (from photographs), or those faces, images and features that have accumulated in memory for many years. I like to draw women because at the subconscious level I feel an emotional connection with them, respectively, and the work comes out brighter. Therefore, I try to surround myself with passionate people, those who are enthusiastic and able to enjoy life – an inexhaustible source of inspiration, without which there would be no my paintings, ”says Emma.
