Emily Bland at studio with paintings
The abstract paintings of artist Emily Bland (b.1988) dance in playful merriment. The expressive brushstrokes and layered texture magnify the bold use of color that draws the viewer in. Each mark enlivens the canvas with a balance of contrast and harmony.

Originally from Lancashire, North West England, Bland moved to Berlin in 2012 shortly after receiving a BFA from the Manchester School of Art. For nearly a decade she has called Berlin home—drawn to the city’s thriving of art and culture scenes. In this interview over email with the artist, she describes the evolution of the content within her paintings and how living abroad has been a source of inspiration.
