At the Beginning of a New World (Series) at the Goldfinch Gallery in Comrie, Perthshire features a new collection by Liz Kemp, who explores the relationship between nature and the modern world with collage-based works which include acrylics, inks, pastel crayon and gold leaf. The paintings in the exhibition are an interpretation of the disruption caused by the pandemic and a sense of impending menace arising from a neglected relationship between humans and the natural world. Kemp initially trained as a sculptor at Edinburgh College of Art, then studied Fine Art at the University of Edinburgh with a particular interest in Renaissance artists of the 14th and 15th centuries. As well as collage paintings, she works with found images and recycled materials to make sculptural paper bowls and wearable art brooches.
There will be the chance to meet Liz in person at the Gallery on Friday 30th April, Saturday 1st May and Friday 8th May (1:30 – 5:30), and on Saturday 9th May (10:00 – 2:30).
