GEMMA KEMPTHORNE

Gemma is a Freelance Artist, Associate Lecturer at Falmouth University and Yoga teacher based in North East Cornwall.

 

She has worked as a performer and choreographer for Rogue Theatre, Cscape, Dance Republic 2 and Salt Festival, amongst others.

 

Her primary focus over the past 5 years has been the development of RoseHip Barn, a venue designed to increase cultural activity in her local area.

 

In addition to managing RoseHip Barn and her dance practice Gemma also paints and is developing her profile as a visual artist with a second exhibition of her work scheduled for Autumn 2015.

 

She enjoys contrasts from the silly to the sublime and is interested in spatial composition be that of choreography, painting or architecture. She enjoys the colourful diversity of her work and views the project Physical Postcards as an excellent opportunity to explore this experience collaboratively through the creative process whilst strengthening her connection with the local community and fellow artists working in North and East Cornwall.
