Joining Kerry Darlington’s legendary series of compact portraits, ‘A Paper Moon’ reflects the artists continued curiosity with transformation and the act of creation possessing the ability to change the perception of objects and places. Describing the concept, Darlington muses; “This piece plays with ideas between illusion and reality. I like to use origami in my work because it is just paper, made to look like something else. I liken this to how we all live our lives, how much of what our eyes see and tell us is actually reality and how much is conditioning, or illusion.”
With an ensemble of recent titles whose focus is the Japanese craft of origami such as ‘The Swan Princess’, ‘The Paper Boat’, and ‘Wish Upon a Paper Butterfly’, Darlington’s newest composition ‘The Paper Moon’ unites ongoing themes and ideas from the very heart of her artistic practice. Featuring glass-like 3D raised origami boats balanced above the painting towards the bottom of the composition which were first seen on ‘One Thousand Paper Cranes’, these beautiful embellishments cast gentle glittering shadows under light. With A Paper Moon itself raised in geometric three-dimension, this piece is sealed beneath Darlington’s signature gloss resin finish and is offered with an accompanying free charm.
