Artists >> Kemp Alice
Alice Kemp works primarily in painting. She is currently painting with thick oil paint on top of flat printed backgrounds. She often applies blobs of ink onto rollers and then rolls the ink onto her canvas to make patterns that act as a background. The painted marks are inspired by the random effect of the print, like a background of mountain shapes on which she paints trees.
Alice wants to challenge the received notion of western ‘high’ art by referencing subjects associated with the Decorative. Her paintings feature flowers, plants, patterns and animals inspired by her experience living in East Asia.
