New Work - Painting
Ione & Mann present Alice Kemp - In the Night Garden
Wed-Sat: 10-6pm; Sun: 10-4pm
New paintings by the British-based artist explore the beauty, simplicity and ephemerality of the natural world; revealing and celebrating the hidden wonders of the domestic garden.
The title of the exhibition is, like most of her paintings’ titles, descriptive and literal; Kemp used her garden as a primary source of inspiration and she would often paint in the evenings. But it also invites introspection, a gentle exploration that holds possibility and promise, offering a glimpse of an enchanted, tranquil dream world which at night seems well within reach.
Kemp’s Night Garden is equally domestic and curiously enchanting. The starting point is not just observation but an immersion in a sensory experience and a genuine connection with nature.
