The Saatchi Gallery is one of the most interesting venues in London for contemporary art lovers. The current exhibition is entitled Out of Focus: Photography, and it will last until the 22nd of July 2012. It is a survey of 40 artists, depicted with a massive array of techniques and different styles and methods. Interesting fact, a lot of the photographers are women. And it seems that they have a lot of absorbing stories to tell, from a particular perspective.
Californian artist Isabel Emrich paints dazzling depictions of women submerged in water. Each colorful oil painting captures moments of tranquility below the water’s surface, as the artist’s subjects float meditatively, welcoming the dancing sunlight from above. The artist reveals, “My underwater collection is inspired by exploring the sensations of peacefulness and calmness, combined with the energy from the movement of the waves you feel when submerged.”
