Literature & references:

Patrick McCaughey, Roger Kemp: Cycle and Direction 1935-1975, 1978, exhibition catalogue, see nos. 49 and 50 for related works;
see also Christopher Heathcote, The Art of Roger Kemp, McMillan, Melbourne, 2007, pp. 193 & 196 for related works - and p 100 for an insightful quote by James Gleeson (The Sun, Sydney, 22 August 1962):
"...one motif emerges with almost obsessional regularity.  This is the idea of movement which he symbolises by flying birds, or by abstract shapes hustling with bird-like freedom through thickets of darkness.  Sometimes the movement is reduced to a fluttering agony in a prison of black lines, but at times it breaks free and speeds with a sense of purpose towards some unknown goal.  Occasionally, the shapes take on a vague semblance to human figures, but they drift without apparent purpose, like pale leaves on a night wind."
