Kerry works using oil colors, finding their texture deeply satisfying. By working in abstract forms she tells the story of tenderness n nature, sometimes also exploring the contrast of its severity. Finessing the line between tension and beauty is her objective. Kerry observes, and then paints, both patterns and randomness seen in plant life and human figures. Her colors are chosen from those that represent the archetypal feminine character, and are used to conjure the same visceral reaction to nature that she experiences.
