Please join us for an Opening Reception to celebrate the Mandeville Gallery’s new exhibition, Jenny Kemp: Slow Grow, which explores the fertile territory of organic abstraction in vibrant paintings where space and light are built through the placement of intricate parallel lines that shift slowly in hue and intensity. Wine and light refreshments will be served. Visitors may also view the exhibition, located upstairs in the Mandeville Gallery, during the event. This event is free and open to the public.
Jenny Kemp has been exploring the possibilities of organic abstraction for more than a decade. This fertile territory has afforded her the visual language and conceptual means to examine a collection of ideas, including biology and histories of modern abstraction.
In Kemp’s vibrant paintings, space and light are built through the placement of intricate parallel lines that shift slowly in hue and intensity. Using this stripe motif, she adopts references to mid-20th century abstraction such as minimalism and op art.
