23 YEARS IN THE MAKING

Some paintings are a lifetime in the making; a tiny spark which ignited in a waking or dreamt thought, years before the brush ever touched the canvas. In the case of Sweets and Treats by Kerry Darlington, the concept - partially inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - of an eccentric factory floor, filled with pipes, cogs and wheels churning to produce a dazzling array of confectionery was born in a small ink drawn pencil sketch when the artist was yet to make her name as one of the bestselling contemporary artists of her generation. The beautifully detailed sketch was gifted to the artists sister over 23 years ago.

INSPIRATION

This deft touch to re-imagine fairy tales so known by their audiences that they feel an inherent sense of protection over them, is trademark Darlington. She contributes to the narrative with fresh vigour, with the greatest of respect to what has come before. This guardianship of character and idea has seen previous works such as The Magic Faraway Treebased upon Enid Blyton’s classic novel as well as the Alice in Wonderland series inspired by Lewis Carroll beloved stories, become sell out editions coveted by collectors.
 

THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY

Jam-packed from edge to edge, no part of the Sweet Factory has been left without detail and attention. Technicolour tubes sprawl across the image, transporting the candy from left to right, whilst oozing across the scene is a river of the “Worlds Hottest Most Chocolatiest Hot Chocolate”. The idea of long forgotten dreams, Sweets and Treats prompts memories of a well spent youth, spending hours picking penny sweets from jars, earnt with pocket money; we see the Sweet Factory through the eyes of our childhood selves.
 

A TRUE DARLINGTON

Darlington 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. Her works cross generations mirroring the power of iconic fables by Roald Dahl or J.M Barrie which are as relevant today as when the ink was still freshly wet on the page. Bringing families together, Darlington’s work hangs in homes from those aged from 7 months to 70 years and more.
