Kerry Darlington

Kerry Darlington is one of the most sought after and influential artists at work in the UK and a major figure on the international art scene. Her boundless creative gift, technical brilliance, mastery of colour and above all, her infinite imagination, have taken her far beyond the everyday and turned her into a fine art sensation.

The haunting beauty of Kerry’s work grows from a unique combination of pattern, nature, energy and nostalgia. Her stunning three dimensional mixed media pieces are unmistakable in style and completely individual, revolving around the theme of myths and legends, poetry and stories. She creates her spellbinding narrative images with a range of materials including resin and metallics. She achieves a unique, translucent texture through the accumulation of layers which adds both depth and light.

Her published works are described as ‘unique editions’ as they combine a printed element with original art. Kerry creates small 3D additions which are hand-worked individually and adhered to the print. The background is also hand embellished, and all the work has resin hand-applied. Therefore although they are in essence a limited edition print, every piece has the appearance of a unique original painting.

Born in 1974 in North Wales, Kerry began to develop a passion for art through her love of old picture books. As a child she was captivated by the illustrations of Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac and Aubrey Beardsley and later on she grew to love the Pre-Raphaelites and Art Nouveau. Her fascination with the wider world of decorative art, and inspired her to undertake a degree in illustration in 1996.

Kerry works in her studio at home in North Wales, combining all of these influences and creating work which is innovative, individual and inspirational. Her work is in huge demand, and in 2012 and again in 2014 she was named as the UK’s best-selling published artist for her extraordinary unique editions.

    ‘A word that describes the feeling behind all of my figurative pieces is the Welsh word ‘hiraeth’ or the Portuguese word ‘saudade’. I felt a connection with Origami and the fragility of the paper, how over the years I have fashioned paper into all manner of things, by making art upon it. And so I have put the two concepts together which have resulted in my painting several figures with their Origami counterparts, upon bare wood which complements the fragile nature of the pieces’.

A paper butterfly is a symbol of metamorphosis, for me a beautiful, contemplative melancholy. For the Japanese, a white butterfly symbolises the soul of a departed one. The Native American people believe that the butterfly can carry a wish to the Great Spirit upon their wings.
