UK artist Olivia Kemp brings a great deal of skill and patience to this series of intricate black and white illustrations. From idyllic scenes to abandoned spaces, a surprisingly rich palette of textures and moods are attained through a dense and intricate rendering style which captures the dynamic personality of each place, right down to the blades of grass.
When asked about her connection to these locations, Olivia takes a decidedly instinctive approach to her work.
“I don’t really have a process for finding things to draw, I come across places and objects when out walking. There’s a huge collection of photographs on my laptop and phone, but some places stand out and I’ll be thinking about them for days or weeks.”All images courtesy of Olivia Kemp.
