Jenny Kemp's lines don't try too hard to mark where one object ends and another begins. Instead, they take the lead in playfully guiding the viewer's eyes around the page, sometimes literally in spirals. If you follow closely, you'll start seeing layers that have you look into the piece beyond surface level. And her color choices have an earthy quality that is almost nostalgic - orange is always in fashion, right?
