TERMINOLOGY

Published Original

This term references original paintings created by Kerry Darlington from acrylic paints and typically finished with delicate layers of matte resin. They are the images that the artist chooses to also publish a limited edition print from. These original works are intricate and can involve several weeks or months to produce, though these can take up to a year of dedicated work to complete. The limited editions (referenced as ‘Unique Editions’) are produced from a scan of the original piece. The original painting is then framed and offered for acquisition.

Original Mixed Media

Used to describe Kerry’s wider portfolio of original artworks. Mostly finished with gloss resin, these original works often feature 3-D elements or many layers of acrylic paint and gloss resin to offer a translucent finish resembling stained glass or ceramics. These are stand-alone paintings without supporting edition prints and as such may only be acquired as an original. Some of Kerry’s most recognisable collections reside within this genre, including works from The Wild and Free series as well as classic Tree of Life motif.

Unique Edition

The most common term used in conjunction with Kerry’s edition works. These are of edition sizes above 50, and can go up to 350 in total, though most usually they are total size of 75, 95, 150 or 195 internationally. The phrase unique references that every edition is slightly different, where the 3D elements vary in placement and colour. Other editions will have metallic ink carefully run through the gloss resin as it sets, also creating a lovely individual effect on each edition. Every edition (including boutique, and Artist Proof editions) feature Darlington’s original signature on the bottom left or right of the artwork, either on a scroll or directly onto the resin surface itself.

Here are a few short videos of these variations in action.

Boutique Edition

Specifically applicable to edition sizes of less than 50. Boutique refers to the smaller edition print run available on the public market. These also comprise the same ‘unique’ differences that Kerry is known for on her larger editions sizes, though singles the works out of an overall smaller availability. Examples of Boutique Editions are titles such as Her Book of Ivy, Matching Set of Alice in Wonderland Pencil Sketches, and Gift of the Dreamers

Rare Edition

Used to signal an edition (either Unique or Boutique) which is tricky to come by. This can indicate the title has either sold out and the edition listed is the final piece available, there are very few editions remaining available to acquire, or an edition that has come to market as a secondary market sale (i.e. a piece which is being re-sold).

Artist Proof

the term Artist Proof (which also can be noted as AP) is a small set of editions released at the same time of either a Unique or Boutique edition. In historical terms they were also known as Printers Proofs as they were the first editions trialed to ensure the colour match on the editions was correct as per the artists vision – they were often gifted by artists to friends and family, or swapped with other artists to collect work rather than being released to sale. These days technology has come on so far that the colours don’t alter from AP to main edition, and Kerry has elected to release them to sale. As they are first made in a print run, some collectors covet these as a preference, though this is down to the individual collector.
