Emma Tod's paintings reflect processes of transformation and change, growth and decay. The activity of painting - dripping, pouring, building up and removing layers of paint are analogous to the weathering and erosion undergone by surfaces found in landscape. This intuitive and reflective process is tempered by the more self-conscious activity of making controlled marks which explore the relationship between the 'natural world' and the space we occupy within it. Reference to the impermanence of natural phenomena in Tod's painting, suggests in turn the transitory nature of our own experience.
