For Jenny Kemp, abstraction is a means to perceive biology and nature in indirect ways. She paints conversations developed through a language of hand-painted parallel lines whose hues pulse with varying intensity, reflecting movement in the natural world. In these spaces, organic form and pattern set out to transcend the awe we feel toward nature to arrive at a place of inquiry, oddity, and sensuality. Kemp received her MFA from the University at Albany and was a recipient of a NYFA fellowship in Painting in 2015. Recent exhibitions include solo shows at Gold/Scopophilia* in Montclair, NJ and The Mandeville Gallery at Union College in Schenectady, NY. Her work will be featured in the upcoming Northeast edition of New American Paintings.
