VIEW IN MY ROOM
The reason I painted this pigeon is because I’ve been having a little problem with them recently. We are lucky enough to have a gorgeous roof terrace here in Barcelona. Pigeons sit on top of the neighbouring flats and with their bottoms hanging over the edge, they do their doings, which then fall all the way down (four stories) and land with a splat! I’m forever hosing down the floor tiles. I painted this from a photo that I took. I felt like a bit of a fool chasing pigeons around in public with my camera phone, trying to get a decent close up. When I snapped this one, I knew I’d caught the right one. I took my time to celebrate this mundane beauty, with those shiny pink and green plumes and orange eyes!

Emma is a London born and educated artist, digital video maker and designer – her artwork straddles stoneware sculpture, cyanotype printing, painting (watercolour, oil and acrylic), illustration, photography, fabric art, animation and vector design. Emma's art is highly personal, her subjects include her friends (animal as well as human), places she’s visited, experiences and things that capture her imagination. Her artwork is uncontrived and free from trying to be anything other than what it is. "At the core of Emma Plunkett's work is the female. Not feminine or politicised. Whether it be a disappearing view of trees into the Spanish horizon, a slithering viscous ceramic or a candid nude. It is always individual and genuine. This we must celebrate”. Gareth Lister - Artist & Curator
