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. 

Emdur’s muse has long been the ocean. Her paintings are carefully rendered to capture and express the immersive quality of the ocean and its currents, whilst luminously portraying the light and ripples reflected from the sandy shallows onto the figures. The depths, with figures dancing and suspended in space, connect us not only to the natural world, but the nostalgia of childhood and the enticement of a time when you felt the cool elements against your skin. At times, a siren swims through the undercurrent of turquoise lace. In other works, we see a flash of colour—the bikini a lure to the eye.
