November 5 2022- January 1 2023
Reception November 5, 4-6 PM
"Rooted in fascination with both the strangeness and beauty of natural growth systems and how they can be gateways for the imaginative, my visual language has developed from an evolving process of repetition and arrangement of linear structures to generate spaces of movement and symbolic thought. Tensions between painterly precision and free hand form are present in elements that wind and weave, playfully nodding to the idea of the curve as a motif for beauty. Yet as patterns emerge, I search for opportunities to create irregularities in order to change course and grow into new territories and associations that teem with a sense of their own agency." - Jenny Kemp, 2022.
