Martine Emdur

Lives and works in Sydney

Artist's CV

Represented by nanda\hobbs


I love the light and warmth from the sun streaming through the top of the picture where the body has pierced the surface and then all the shadows give the sensation of the cold, more mysterious water below.

Martine Emdur is one of Australia's most loved contemporary painters. 

For the past twenty years, she has led collectors to an ethereal world of water, light and the human form.  Sensual, beautiful, and deliciously evocative—her work is the perfect foil from the modern world. Her connection and representation to the natural world in her expansive canvases has gained her worldwide recognition. 

Martine Emdur joins Nanda\Hobbs with an exciting exhibition of new works in April 2019. With some new directions in the studio, it is set to be a landmark show for the artist.
