"I painted ‘Becoming Nobody’ and ‘Astral Storylines’ whilst listening to Ram Dass, (an American spiritual teacher, psychologist, and author); he talk about these subjects and they conjure up beautiful images for me."
- Kerry Darlington
Radiating mystery, the extraordinary work Becoming Nobody develops Darlington’s fascination with elf-like muses and ancient folklore. With hints of the woodland, the artist has lavished time on the intricate features that form this heart shaped face; soft brushstrokes reveal her eyelashes and flowing hair. Ghosts of dandelions and bumblebees gently dance on the wind, whilst butterflies and ladybirds are etched into the skin across her decoupage, united in the rhythm of her heartbeat. A bewitching duo, Becoming Nobody is the companion work to Astral Storylines which is another extraordinary portrait.
With delicacy and technical excellence rarely witnessed, the companion pair of original works Becoming Nobody and Astral Storylines offer the viewer an experience of extraordinary quality. Developing her technique for almost two decades, collectors can enjoy the effect of many layers of delicate acrylic paint and matte resin finish to conjure the illusion of soft smoke and a gentle breeze on the wind.
