Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Francis Roderick Kemp OBE (Eaglehawk, 3 July 1908 - Melbourne 14 September 1987), known as Roger, was one of Australia's foremost practitioners of transcendental abstraction. Working in the tradition of Wassily Kandinsky, Kasimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian and Frantisek Kupka, he developed a system of symbols and motifs which were deployed in his non-figurative paintings so as to reveal cosmic mysteries, striving in particular to explain man's place in a universal order.He was born in California Gully to Cornish Australian parents, Frank Kemp, a gold miner, and Rebecca Kemp, nee Harvey. Both the Kemps and Harveys were devout Methodists and proud Cornish people. In 1913 the family moved to Melbourne after a mining accident. The Cornish were well known for their singing and most Cornish Australian boys at that time joined youth choirs, Kemp being no exception. In 1920 his father died after being hit by a car.
