Beauty and The Beast is Kerry Darlington's most recent composition from the acclaimed, Folklore Collection. An eagerly anticipated piece, Beauty and The Beast follows up from the very successful 'Snow White Rose Red', 'Little Red Riding Hood' and 'The Snow Queen' artworks.


The Beast represents the dark animal nature connected to our survival instincts and fears. Because it is so big and powerful, we tend to keep this part of ourselves in the shadows. We refuse to look at it or show it outwardly to the world. Only when we confront our beast will we understand the strength and treasure held within it. Beauty demonstrates to us that looks can be deceiving.


The Rose as a feature, represents transformation. Beauty asked for the Rose out of love. The Beast had to transform himself through love. The fairy-tale tells us that when you ask for something truly from the heart, you will receive the wisdom that you need; although “you may not be aware of the price that must be paid for it until later”.


The painting features an adolescent girl embracing a fierce but powerful lion. Encouraging us to consider what strength is rather than what it looks like, the artist approaches the dichotomy that we are both are our own greatest assets and our own biggest downfalls.
