Roger Kemp’s developed a personal symbolic visual language throughout his oeuvre, in part based on mysticism and theosophical theories. His work is characterised by the rhythmic tension between the opposing geometry of circle and square and the contrast of dark line against daubs of colour. His painting practice grew in maturity and boldness throughout the sixties and seventies, a time when his work gained critical acclaim through a series of exhibitions and awards. This work was created in the mid 1970s, when he was working at the Winfield Studios alongside George Baldessin.
