"I PAINT ALL THAT I CAN'T SEE AND A LITTLE OF WHAT I CAN"The immortal line uttered by Kerry Darlington so perfectly sums up her approach to the portfolio of paintings and unique editions which have captivated a generation of art lovers. Focusing on The Otherworld, a concept originating in Gaelic mythology this realm of imagination is the stage for eternal youth, beauty, abundance, and joy.
FAIRYTALEThe Otherworld is this time interpreted in pure Darlington iconography in incredible image ‘The Elixir of Love’. Magic is at the very heart of this enchanting work; where we are taken far away from our day to day; for this is a place where the make-believe is true and every day cares are left firmly behind. Building upon previous sell out works ‘Moon Song’ and ‘Celtic Twilight’ which are comprised within the Nature’s Faeries collection, Darlington’s own version of The Otherworld is expanding into epic new territory.
SETTINGThrough the thicket, the forest reveals a woodland bathed in light, home to many woodland creatures, including fairies . It is time for refreshment, half acorns serve as perfect cups – perhaps holding tea, or a drop of the Elixir itself. Childlike wonder underpins Darlington’s ideas; romance here is sweet and charming, echoing the first wonderous days of falling in love. The three points of the hanging clock are fixed upon ‘Home’ and ‘Happiness’, and of course, ‘Tea’.
CHARMSThe An extra treat for collectors when they pre-ordered ‘The Elixir of Love’ was the wonderful complimentary heart charm, a little nod to the biscuits shared by the woodland faeries at teatime.
