Emily Filler @ Rebecca Hossack

1 February 2017 - 25 March 2017

Emily Filler is a collector – of patterns, colours, images and natural textures brought together in Florilegium her new exhibition.  In a process she describes as ‘painterly collage’, Filler’s gathering eye and hand are strongly present in each canvas. Precise dotting and checkered borders are juxtaposed with photographic transfers of herbaceous tendrils, blocks of primary colour and whitewashed backdrops, layered behind groups of bright gestural blooms and stencilled leaves.
Filler’s work relies heavily on the act of removal, scraping back layers of paint that have been steadily built up, bringing hints of new colour to the surface. This process of retrospection moves the painting forward just as Filler is looking backwards.
