Emmie van Biervliet
Creative from the start Emmie van Biervliet was born in 1983 in the UK. She studied art at Nottingham Trent University, graduating in 2006 but had already started curating and showing work in Oxford and London. Her pieces have appeared in a number of publications and in 2010 she won the Diana Brooks Award at the Art for Youth Exhibition at the Royal College of Art.
She says her work " Aims to capture the vibrancy, chaos and beauty of distant cultures. It examines the memories and details left by people who are no longer there but have somehow left a ghostly presence or part of their character ingrained in the interior and exterior of buildings."
Magic realism is an integral part of her paintings. These are formed not only through the use of paint but often intricately layering paper, coffee, gold leaf, parts of a circuit boards, spices, lego and other unusual materials collected during her travels. She works from a studio in Bristol in between art residencies and sketching in situ. Recently returned from the Himalayas, she has also worked from a cave in Cappadocia, a car while driving overland to Mongolia and a beautiful crumbling building in Havana.
Quantum exhibited Emmie's work for the first time at the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea Park in March 2011. Since then we have taken her work, to great acclaim, to Art Singapore, AAF Hong Kong, Stockholm AFF, New York art fair, Art Hamptons, Art Toronto and Art Palm Beach.
