Kerry Darlington's Only Official Exhibition

Wyecliffe Galleries were thrilled to host ‘The Otherworld’, in collaboration with one of the nation’s most renowned artists, Kerry Darlington. The only official exhibition of this extraordinary artists work to take place in 2021, the evening witnessed the unveiling of a bespoke collection of exclusive original works alongside major international editions and boutique releases.


Over 6000 Collectors


Accessible from the realms of imagination, Kerry Darlington’s vision of The Otherworld is where her extraordinary artistic compositions come to life. Transporting viewers to take a journey of wonder, nostalgia and delight to an alternative universe in which witches and wizards, gods and goddesses and pixies and faeries exist in harmony with life as we know it.

Set within this astral sphere, Darlington revealed what is considered to be her first work within the Pre-Raphaelite collection in over five years ‘Pantheress’. With the background in soft focus, this immense figurative work leaves the viewer to decide if it takes place within the galaxy and amongst the stars, deep underwater or within a dream world. In an extension of the question of reality versus illusion, brand new portrait work ‘The Paper Moon’ reflects the artists continued curiosity with transformation and the act of creation possessing the ability to change the perception of objects and places.

Inspired by some of Kerry Darlington’s favourite childhood tales, the work is set within an enchanted forest, a giant magical tree is the site of a jubilant midnight festival, attended by faeries, pixies, elves and goblins.

In a similar fantastical theme the incredible pencil sketch edition ‘Flight Over St. Pauls’ saw the artist return her cast of magical characters to London and the site of one of her most celebrated works of all time ‘Worlds Collide’.
