About the book:

Moon World Venus, published in 2006, in conjunction with an exhibit at the Museum Het Valkhom, Nijmegen.

"The van Empel potraits are very painterly, with lush, high precision tableaux set behind the figure. And yet the figures themselves are very straightforward. The combination lends the pictures as sense of impossibility, or innocence, or contrast, or an aura of sinister trouble awaiting. They’re definitely not boring, and not anything that could have been done before the advent of the new technology.

The monograph has a complete set of all of van Empel’s work to date, so the evolution and refinement of his ideas can be seen more clearly.” - Loring Knoblauch.
