INTRODUCTIONInspired by the story collected by the Brothers Grimm, 'Snow White & Rose Red' is the latest Unique Edition by Kerry Darlington. Made with three layers and embellished with roses, the painting is finished with gold leaf highlights.
STORYTELLINGDarlington is recognised for her distinct approach to storytelling which combines the pure joy of fantasy along with the finesse of personal creativity. That is the charm of Darlington’s paintings – they bring out the storyteller in us, as is the case with this piece as Kerry looks to story-tell the relationship between children and beast, she communicates this connection by the clear affection shown between both alliances.
INGENUITYSuch stories have become the touchstone of leading contemporary artist Kerry Darlington, whose talent has transformed the black and white written word into stunning painted form. Introducing the romantic chronicles in symbolic style, the artist has handpicked single passages from the stories to frame the tender moments of solace and contemplation, which sit apart from the traditional action and uncertainty.
THE PROCESSSubsequent layers of resin are painted upon, building up and intensifying the background colours, or painting over pastels to give a gentle translucent colour. Upon the top layer of resin, Kerry adds the finer details of the piece, adds small white highlights and the finished image is archival-varnished.
