Gareth Kemp

Page 1 | Biography


As a painter, Gareth Kemp is interested in the construction of paintings. Gareth usually paints from a number of photographic sources; old family photographs, holiday snaps, carefully composed photographs and images from magazines and newspapers. He spends many hours carefully planning the assemblage of elements in each painting, a process of mentally cutting and pasting within and between photographs. This results in repetitions and occlusions and also a blurring between foreground and background and what is real and what is not. The finished paintings hint towards a narrative and through their particular construction methods provoke a subtle sense of unease. His work is held in a number of private collections in both the UK and the USA.
