Gallery Stratford Emily Schaefer Exhibition- Poetic Alchemy

My work focuses on the physical application of medium to surface, and the thought process behind it. I investigate how the formal components of a painting interact with one another, by analyzing and questioning the process with every decision made. In my paintings, colour is capable of changing everything. Poured instances of colour occasionally combine, creating a new colour on their own. Other times, they sit beside each other maintaining complete individuality. I explore the relationship colours form when made to exist with one another, by pushing them past their comfort zone. - Emily Schaefer.

Darkness and Light: Contrast in the Gallery Stratford Collection

The selected works in this exhibition are a study in contrast, both in the predominantly black and white palette of the pieces, but also in the execution which ranges from the methodical and precise to the spontaneous and gestural. Positive and negative space is conveyed in different styles: some static and serene, others kinetic and free. Some representational, some abstract. There is a varying range of media: prints, drawings, paintings, collage and photographs - all executed in black and white, and all selected from the Gallery Stratford Collection by Community Curators, Carrie and Jeremy Wreford.

Gallery Stratford is excited to showcase this work, that has all been selected by two members of our community.
