Biography

Emerald Rose Whipple is a leading emerging artist known for her strikingly distinctive paintings, produced in a photorealistic & impressionist style, which depict youth culture and lush landscapes. Whipple's paintings have appeared Dazed & Confused Magazine, Another Magazine, The Last Magazine, and featured in issues of The Huffington Post, i-D Magazine, Women’s Wear Daily, HART Magazine, De Witte Raaf, Transmission Magazine and Engram.

Whipple’s work focuses primarily on the theme of the soul represented both by nature and by man, confronting traditional views of ancient philosophy, mythology, symbolism, alchemy, and what we know to be the idea of reality. There are subtle undertones of metaphysics, mysticism, shamanism, life, death, the afterlife, the essence of being and the energy or life force that generates and sustains our existence in the universe. These ideas question both the identity of the subject and the viewer.

Whipple produces each series as a complete body of work; portraits are often coupled with nature. Whipple's landscapes are often vast, featuring lush tropics and desert landscapes, the ocean or celestial skyscapes abstraction. Original images are hand drawn using a grid technique from candid photography of the artist’s friends. Whipple's paintings display overlapping brush strokes, which reference pointillism and Impressionism. Her work features a juxtaposition of short, thick brushstrokes to small, distinct dots of paint which relies on the ability of the eye and mind of the viewer to blend the color spots into a fuller range of tones. The result, when viewed up close, is an abstraction of natural form, a condensed depiction of the painting referencing either portrait or landscape. However, when the viewer steps back, the strokes and dots depict a photorealistic image.

Emerald Rose Whipple was born in California in 1989. She spent her adolescent childhood between Ojai, California and Kauai, Hawaii. She studied Fashion Design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY where she received a BFA in Fashion Design in 2012. Whipple lives and works in New York City.
