Olivia Kemp’s pen and ink on paper drawings are a visually dense, detailed examination of landscapes, man-made structures on the land, and the inevitability of decay of these structures as they are overtaken by nature. The drawings invite close inspection as even the most minute details of the landscape are depicted with clean precision and a sense that nothing has escaped the artist’s gaze.
Olivia Kemp completed her masters at the Wimbledon College of Art, followed with “The drawing year” postgraduate program at the Royal Drawing School. Her work is in many notable collections, including the V&A museum and The Royal Collection.
