Emanuel is an artist strongly influenced by music. His figurative works are melodies played in textured forms - brilliant in color, exciting in design - a metamorphosis of the extension of music into art.... human form transposed to music...music to art...art to human expression...human expression to the rhythm of life...the quieting play of sound...the expression of scale relating to the yin and yang of color and motion in his life as well as his art. His sound of art is a freshness of style and approach, a blend of the modern with the antique reflecting an age of quality...quality of meaning, quality of image.
The teaching of the poets and the philosophers was instilled in him at the Atlanta Institute of Art with extensive studies in painting and photography.
This marriage of the discipline of photography with the controlled freedom of painting is evident in his use of perspective, shadow and light... the play of light creating the infinity of perspective with each section of his canvas, leading the eye from point to point.
Also an accomplished serigrapher, he applies these skills in his present painting style... a painting style which reflects his thoughts, soul and dreams is recognizable to the viewers as uniquely Emanuel
His works appear in galleries and private collections throughout the world.
