Marianne Kemp

Marianne Kemp's passion for weaving - the process, the repetition, the creation of textural form- is evident in her unique sculptural wall textiles. With her loom, Kemp weaves innovative, new surfaces in which the conventional weaving techniques cannot be recognized. Using horsehair and raw plant fibers, she works in a meticulously precise manner to create surfaces that seem organically morphed. Each centimeter is studied, every rhythm calculated, each structure engineered. The warp and weft are central to the weaving, with added organic elements playing the role of a transformation.
