“The art of storytelling” is a phrase synonymous with Kerry Darlington. Having presented her interpretations of Alice in Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Until the Wind Changes looks set to join the ranks of one of the artists most iconic works ever presented. Inspired by the series of short books dating from 1934 following the adventures of Mary Poppins; her character needs little introduction so iconic are her umbrella and flower decorated hat.
Kerry Darlington - Until the Wind Changes
Mary Poppins was a much loved Christmas film. I was happiest as a child immersed in a fantasy world; magical beings felt very real to me and part of a world I longed to belong to. I remember drawing chalk paintings on the pavement by my house and jumping into them, hoping I would be transported into them just as the children had been with Poppins"

Once these conditions are met: the works are painstakingly recorded in our state-of-the-art database system (including advanced location tracking) and extensively photographed by Lucy and the image processing team. With extensive ‘macro’ detail shots utilising the Canon EOS 5DS camera: these shots not only form the basis for internet and print promotions: but form a visual record of the work at ultra-high resolution.
Finally; the works that aren’t immediately selected for the gallery walls (or better still, immediately dispatched to a lucky collector) are archived in our temperature controlled ‘vault’. Stored upright, fully surrounded in custom high-impact expanded rubber: the securely stored paintings are routinely checked and rotated onto gallery displays to ensure they remain in mint condition.
