02 November 2020 update: NEW 'Rainbow Tears' and 'Rainbow Spirit' ❤️ fantastic Rainbow inspired artworks (printed) Art On Glass - Winter Releases are set for release on the 23rd of this month. We are taking pre-orders now for these wonderful and deeply meaningful artwork by the talented Emma Grzonkowski but with just 25 in the main edition and 3 Artist Proofs, do hurry up and get your stocking filler from the popular artist Emma G.
13th July 2020 sees the launch of the amazing 'Born Of Fire - Collection.' Commissions and original enquiries taken with us as usual.
Four stunning 'Born' artworks featuring a beautiful red head Tabitha and the collection exudes confidence, female sexuality and power, as well as being jaw dropping works of art by Emma G; the paintings are: 'Born Ready,' 'Born Rare,' 'Born Powerful' and 'Born Worthy.' - limited editions from the last two are also currently pre-orderable, just 10 copies each!
Meeting by chance the model in the pictures 'Tabitha' in a restaurant, a confident young lady, sassy and with long blonde hair, Emma approached her and asked to photograph her for some new paintings.
Once she came into the studio Tabitha has returned to her natural red locks and was concerned Emma would not use her but instead Emma loved her hair and themed the four prints around the colour change itself and ‘Born Of Fire’ was coined.
On completion the model saw the artwork and wept, realising she herself had used blonding her own hair as a shield to protect herself and the artwork had inspired her to connect with her own inner confidence.
Emma Grzonkowski is known affectionately by friends and in art circles as 'Emma G.'
She became a self-published and independent artist in July of 2019 after 10 years with a major UK art publisher, feeling creative wise it was the right time to explore and launch her own art company and brand, called simply ‘GRZ FINE ART.’ Commissions are currently open so please contact us.
3rd February 2020 sees the launch of her first self-published limited edition canvas: 'Poison Ivy,' inspired no doubt by the DC Universe and Batman comic book villain - with accompanying shades of green!
**Emma discusses her 'Alter Egos' (2017) pair of releases, their meaning & reason for creation:
The artist has a unique way of pouring paint onto the frames her artwork and you can see 'Poison Ivy' is an eye catching picture & has the aforementioned frame finish - these editions are also hand-resined for spectacular effect!
"Emma returns for 2017 with her latest collection Alter Egos, which focuses on the four dominant facets of her own inner dialogue. In this evocative body of work we see the artist segue from warrior to victim, bravely confronting that which society dictates we ought to keep hidden.
Casting off the shackles of conformity, freed from the cultural constraints that demand nothing less than flawless and faultless at all times, Emma acknowledges and embraces all the various personas that coexist within her psyche."
3rd September 2013 sees the launch of the Emma Grzonkowski Autumn 2013 - Releases, two stunning images celebrating femme fatales across TV, Cinema and indeed music, with the box canvas pair: 'Sugar Venom' and 'Assoiffée D'Amour.' The theme of strong female energy is one Emma returns to continuously, creating exceptional imagery with it in mind.
Emma grew up in Crewe, Chester, in the Northwest of England and in a typical artist beginning story she was sketching and creating from the moment she could hold a crayon.
Her parents noticed early on her innate need to create and her father Steven would encourage her to pursue this. Steven himself would spend many a day creating drawings for her to try and recreate and a young Emma would plaster these over her bedroom, and then copying them as close as possible with her own hand; she was highly motivated to spend hours at the task before it was ‘just right’ and thus she began to hone her skills.
Excelling in Art at school, she went on to study Art & Design at Sir John Dean's Sixth Form College as well Media and Theatre studies - unsurprising since her painting are imbued with emotion & drama.
But it was at this time she realised art was her true calling and her passion lay almost fully with the creative process.
**An insight into the artist, her studio from 2011 and set to music: 'Let the Sun Shine' by Labrinth & Act Like You Know (Dubstep Mix) by Nero (UK):
While still at University studying Art in 2008, Emma took the bold move of presenting her art to a local gallery manager, who impressed would show it to the owners; to her great surprise they came back an offered her an endorsement to paint over 20 paintings during the following year.
In late 2009 this original gallery hosted her debut one woman art show and with her original paintings selling out on the night, she was instantly signed to contact from the publishing house and so would begin 10 years as successful published and represented artist.
Her work has appeared in exclusive galleries up and down the British Isles in the ensuing decade, her mysterious and evocative paintings of women offering delight and creating questions in the mind of her adoring public. Bold colours and multi-spectrum light reflections, cut through the lines between reality, illusion, and dreams.
After losing someone dear to her, the only thing that kept the artist focused and inspired was the need to create and the urge to continue her unique paintings. Favouring a vigorous and frantic manner meant that the artist was free to express herself and allow for a journey of inner peace and discovery to begin. Emotions and her self inner being are poured onto each canvas and this is quite a physical process as much as it is a mental one.
Her subject is predominately herself, due to the nature of the work and this brilliantly sits alongside an abstract, expressive background, whilst this contrasts with the literal figure of herself in each canvas.
Taking photographs of herself and playing digitally with their colour then enables to artist to explore light and composition, which then forms the bases of her works. Textures also play a huge part in the artist's creative process and this gives more depth and dynamics to the artist's pictorial space. Not allowing a thick application of water based acrylics enables the artist to create her signature bleeding of the canvas and this is the most exciting part of expressing her inner thoughts.
