Studio Visit with Emma Tooth

Our good friend Sven over at Arrested Motion recently conducted a studio visit with UK fine artist Emma Tooth as the master painter prepares for her upcoming museum show at the Derby Museum and Art Gallery. Tooth's ongoing series, "Consilium Plebis", takes on ordinary and everyday subjects, painting them in a masterful and extraordinary way. The artist's use of "chavs", "hoodys", "scallys" (and even random subjects off the street), makes her a perfect, albeit somewhat shocking, partner to show alongside English portraitist Joseph Wright of Derby, who's works often feature common subjects and will accompany hers in the upcoming museum show. Keep an eye out later this year for a solo show at Lazarides, and in the meantime check out the artist's studio and some process pics after the jump.
