The Mount of Olives, 1987, Franz Kempf
The State Library of South Australia is pleased to present Aspects of a Journey an exhibition celebrating the work of Adelaide artist Franz Kempf. Partnering with the 2016 SALA Festival, the exhibition is a reflection of Franz Kempf's past and present work. See paintings and prints drawn largely from Kempf's personal collection from the late 1940s.

Celebrating his 90th birthday, this exhibition reflects aspects of Kempf's journey through a world of imaginations, of light and darkness, of war, death, chaos and national disaster.

On display are over 40 original paintings and prints by Kempf which speak about the grand themes of life and common circumstances of humanity. Described as both complex and visual, his work shows emotion and historical breadth. The works have come directly from the walls of Kempf's personal studio to be displayed at the State Library of South Australia.
