A portrait of a girl by Lake Bangweulu in Northern Zambia. This girl has become the subject of a number of portraits now. I was captivated by her presence. Living in a very run down house with her brothers and sisters, they reminded me of the famous five. The experience of meeting them has left a lasting impression. Strong inquisitive youth. I wanted to use very simple brush strokes to leave a gestural painting that leaves the base colour of red as a radiating presence in the portrait.

The majority of Emily’s work draws on the study of people and wildlife, using the figure as the central object for interpretation. Interested in exploring methods of painting that allow her to communicate and express raw emotion and movement, a continued investigation into colour and form lay at the heart of Kirby's practice. Born into a family of artists in Zambia, Emily’s roots continue to have a deep impact on her work. Emily currently lives in Brighton but regularly returns to Africa to travel, paint and exhibit. Emily has exhibited internationally with shows in cities including London, Lusaka, Dubai, New York, Prague and Valladolid. In 2012 Emily was awarded The Chairmans Ngoma Award for Visual Artist in the Diaspora by the Zambian Arts Council.
