Roger Kemp

Roger Kemp OBE is celebrated for his contribution to Australian transcendental abstraction. Drawing from European Old Masters and early 20th Century Modernists, Kemp employed a series of symbols and motifs in an attempt to explain the place of humankind in the universal order. In the 1950s Kemp came to prominence as the founder of a group of Melbourne-Based avant-garde Abstractionists, who exhibited as the Antipodeans. This group included Leonard French, Inge King, Leonard Crawford and George Johnson. Throughout his career Kemp received several awards including the D’Arcy Memorial Prize for Religious Art (1964), the International Co-operation Art Award (1969) and the Distinguished Artists Award (1973).
