YEARS IN THE MAKINGBursting at the seams and barely containable, The Worlds Collide from Kerry Darlington is a force to be reckoned with. Following years of devoted reading within the fantasy genre, it is not an exaggeration to suggest that this painting has been a lifetime in the making.
INSPIRATIONSFour dragons in bejewelled colours of purple, emerald, and indigo blue carry children atop their backs. Whilst part of a modern zeitgeist reminiscent of the use of fire-breathers in Harry Potter and A Song of Ice and Fire, the artist admits her Welsh roots might have subliminally influenced their appearance in The Worlds Collide.
THE SETTINGAs never before, The Worlds Collide is the very first work to be set in contemporary times, soaring above the moonlit iconic skyline of London. Big Ben, the London Eye and St. Pauls sit amongst a glittering array of lamp filled windows.
THE PROTAGONISTDensely detailed, above the city a compact yet strong little girl rides a dragon sounding the battle call. Arms lifted, cupping her hands to her mouth to shout to her comrades above the roar of the Thames river and bustle of London below, she is the figurehead of a tribe fighting for good.
The Worlds Collide Collection by Kerry Darlington is the ultimate fantasy story told by one of the UK’s most compelling artists. In a series of works that take her magical characters from the city of London to historical castles, the works tell of the journey to defends virtues of goodness and innocence from evil unseen forces. With her newest release 'Lost Worlds' taking another dive into her fantasy realm.
