Emmanuel explores the past and present through realism and portraiture. His body of work includes a growing retrospect of American icons, where each piece is presented as a fragment in a larger American patchwork. Individually, his subjects attempt to characterize the social climate at a given moment in history. They are influential, recognizable images; relevant within specific ethnic and social groups. Some subjects are foreign to others outside of a particular group or generation. Just as one group identifies emotionally with a particular image through a shared social lens, outsiders will experience these images within their specific context. The “recognition factor” of his subjects reaffirms the identity and unique cultural perspective of a specific group while simultaneously establishing an ”otherness” in viewers outside of a given group. The artist uses pencil, pastels, oil, and watercolor to create movement and energy. He brings intimacy to large-scale pieces with detailed attention to subtleties often missed by others.
