About the Art:

Since the early 1980s Kemm’s works have displayed his concentration on three-dimensional painted collages. Kemm has explored numerous techniques along with various methods of assemblage and applications that are represented in his current work. Each piece has emerged out of spontaneous play and may be looked upon as having been borne pout of experimentation and active dreaming.
His work appropriates imagery found throughout the history of art and world religions, and through these archetypal images that Kemm employs, one is able to enter into his spiritual and emotional journey as he continues to seek answers to “life’s great questions.”
