In the year of the renowned artists 90th birthday, Franz Kempf: Aspects of a journey gathers together many of Kempf’s finest works from the 1940s to today, including treasures from his private collection. John Neylon’s illuminating essay considers the qualities that give Kempf’s oeuvre a distinctive identity within Australian art, ‘characterised by this seeming contradiction of constancy and flux’.

‘Both visual and multi-layered , Kempf’s work reveals great emotion and historical breadth.’ – Lynne Lancaster, Sydney Arts Guide
