‘Her Book of Ivy’ transcends time and location, transporting us to a world unique to Kerry’s own imagination. Delicately produced on hand treated wooden panels – with additional varnish to lock in the vibrancy of the paintwork. Each piece is hand-finished in her signature gloss resin.
Kerry is by heart – a storyteller. It’s unsurprising that her face boutiques are some of her most popular and desirable works. Intensely detailed studies, each new portrait brings with it a new perspective… a different way to consider the connection between femininity, the natural world, folklore and the soul.
BEHIND THE FACE
Artistically, portraits play an important part in history. Before photographs – they were the way we used to communicate & capture moments in someone’s life. Much more than just a record, they were used to show the virtue, status, personal-history and physical attributes of the sitter. Delicate and complex, each painting features layers upon layers of subtle pigmentation and tone. Kerry can spend months building up layers of resin to create something not only ‘life-like’ …but something that memorises and inspires.
‘Her Book of Ivy’ as with all of Kerry’s portraits is rich with significant symbols and detailing. Ivy, a symbol of eternity, youth and lasting affection is worked into the composition, a nod to Kerry’s own fascination with nature. This is a connection that runs deep, and references can be seen in many of her pieces. Notice also, her lavish embellishment of subtle gold leaf throughout – helping to provide different textures and glistening qualities.
Goldilocks and The Three Bears is Kerry Darlington's most recent composition from her acclaimed, Folklore Collection, up to one year in the making, this piece is one of her most studious pieces to date.
