Kempton’s abstract designs are varied in texture as they are in style and design. Using acrylic as his favored medium, Kempton’s collection includes large, action-field canvases as well as abstract, geometric designs.
The artist’s large action-field canvases are the ultimate in contemporary, ranging from deep, seductive hues to vibrant, gem-like colors. These landscape-oriented designs often generate what appears to be a light glowing from deep within the painting’s surface.
Kempton’s geometric series is equally impressive, varying from affluent, earth shades to brilliant, bold tones. The artist uses blocks of pure color against contrasting fields to create a unique, intense palette.
Born in Colorado, Kempton received his education at the Rocky Mountain School of Design and devotes all of his time to painting, reading and traveling.
