Snow White & Rose Red - Kerry Darlington

Snow White & Rose Red

The Background Story


Snow White & Rose Red has been one of the earlier stories that has become the touchstone of leading contemporary artist, Kerry Darlington, whose talent has transformed the black and white written word into stunning painted form. Introducing the romantic chronicles in symbolic style, the artist has handpicked single passages from the stories to frame the tender moments of solace and contemplation, which sit apart from the traditional action and uncertainty. As such, Kerry Darlington strives to show the upright deeds and purity of heart conveyed from the children as their impoverished circumstances, kindness and compassion towards the eerie Bear pays off in the end.  

The Power of Storytelling


Darlington is recognised for her distinct approach to storytelling which combines the pure joy of fantasy along with the finesse of personal creativity. That is the charm of Darlington’s paintings – they bring out the storyteller in us. Her works cross generations mirroring the power of iconic fables by Roald Dahl or J.M Barrie which are as relevant today as when the ink was still freshly wet on the page. Bringing families together, Darlington’s work hangs in homes from those aged from 7 months to 70 years and more. Kerry looks to story-tell the most important relationship between children and beast, she communicates this connection by the clear affection shown between the two parties, despite that the nature of this relationship is anything but in real life, Kerry enjoys showing the soft sides to all living organisms.

A thoughtful and quietly spoken artist, Scott Bauer’s polite manner is the perfect reflection of a series of accomplished original acrylic works with pristine painted stripes as their signature structure. A genre named by the artist as linear formalism, the term conjures thoughts of complex algebraic formulas, a mindset far away from the freedom of creative imagination. Using fragments of memory along with his perception of the world, the artist distills light and colour into stunningly rendered stripes. Waved, faded and pure, the outcome are pieces both calmly meditative and excitingly vivid. Wyecliffe Galleries are privileged to share an insight in to the mind of this emerging artist.
