ARTIST INFO

About 

With an underlying interest in exploring narratives touching on the fluidity of gender and identities; Lily Kemp's paintings explore ideas around change, states of transition and more recently, intimacy, memory and sense of belonging. Her figures living within these imagined worlds and dream like realities which are both familiar, yet also border on the performative and theatrical.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork 

“Greener pastures” and “Under a blue sky” show the same figure overlooking different landscapes, of a field dotted with pink and purple flowers and a cloudy blue sky. A feeling of soft hazy memories and quiet, with gentle shapes made from the ribbons of her dress intertwining with the ribbons in her hair.
