Emma Loizides

Emma Loizides fascination for all things Americana began at a young age. Cinema opened her eyes to the frenetic streets of New York in Home Alone, and she saw a glimpse of the big Boulevards of Hollywood in Pretty Woman.

Emma’s route into art wasn’t a traditional one. After university she started working in banking and enrolled in Saturday classes to learn oil painting. Travel became a resource for her work, sketching and photographing her road trips along the way. She is drawn to colourful sunsets, interesting architecture, and anything from palm trees to road signs. Her sketchbook helps her record moments of curiosity moving through a place, of being present.

Strolling around the streets of London is also a source of inspiration. Emma will often paint idealised scenes of the city, devoid of people and cars, emulating a sense of calm, or even melancholy. Capturing the peaceful mystery of the early hours.

Her work is rich with texture, and Emma’s romanticised paintings feature quirky buildings and expansive skies with pops of pastel neon paint. The saturated cityscapes are about escapism, offering the viewer a moment to contemplate. A short break from the chaos of city life. They are also about fun and enjoyment, sharing the feeling of nostalgia she gets looking over a twinkling skyline, painting an ice cream van or portraying a LA diner in one of her American pieces.
