Paul Emsley was born in Glasgow in 1947 and moved to South Africa in 1969. He attended classes in Art & Design at Cape Technical College. From 1983 – 1995 Emsley taught drawing at the Department of Creative Arts, at the University of Stellenbosch. In 1996, he moved to England.
“I have always loved drawing. The dryness of the paper and the chalk demand precision and exactness. It quickly exposes one’s weaknesses and mistakes, leaving no room for cleverness or tricks. In my drawings, I try to emphasize the singularity and silence of the form. By a careful balancing of tones, I emphasise the way in which light and shade fall across the subject. By creating a settled half-light, I try to transform the existence of the object from the ordinary to something more profound.” Paul Emsley
