HER WORK SHOWCASES BOLD MONOCHROMATIC FIGURES AND FEATURES
Isobel Kemp has had a keen eye for colour for as long as she can remember. Wanting to explore the subject she began developing her style. Isobel began by painting editorial figures due to her love for fashion, and slowly started experimenting with textiles in her work; alongside completing a foundation degree in fine art and design.
Her work showcases bold monochromatic figures and features, delving into the concept of self expression and how people emphasise this as individuals. She is intrigued by the things people do to express themselves, from the clothes they wear to the way they carry themselves. Working with a limited colour pallet allows her to focus on these key elements and accentuate them further, taking the choices each individual makes and encapsulating it in the form of art.
Isobel works mainly in acrylics, choosing to further embellish her works with a range of fabrics, threads and zips, to bring the painted textures to life. She experiments within her art process to find out what textures she can work with, to further push the boundaries with each piece she creates
