Emma Tooth / Concilium Plebis / The Outsiders Greek Theater

November 03, 2010 1 min read


Comprising of her extraordinary portraits of 'ordinary people' Tooth explores the medium of portrait painting in the 21st Century. Depicting British youth culture through the style of traditional Renaissance  painting Tooth confronts our preconceptions challenging the viewer with her subject matter: 'People's Council'. Concilium Plebis consists of a series of paintings, where Tooth transforms and imortalises her subjects into a guise of saints and icons.

"Outward appearance is an extremely powerful tool and most of use are adept at reading the sometimes subtle messages conveyed.... but often these symbols can be misread, like judging a book by it's cover".
