Paul Emsley’s Michael Simpson

Paul Emsley

Paul Emsley is a Scottish artist who grew up in South Africa. Here’s what he has to say in his artist’s statement:

“All that I can experience of the universe with any degree of certainty is matter, for me it is the visible and tangible end of space.”

Of course Emsley can’t be sure that experience is any more than an illusion.

The painting below is entitled Dorothy.
