About

Kerrie delights in noticing the trivialities of life. Her paintings are of familiar objects and of subjects close to home. Her art is largely observational, and impressionist in style. Oil-paints are her preferred medium, although you will find examples of work in nail-polish, acrylic, guache, charcoal, pen and pencil.
Kerrie is an Industrial Designer by profession, and delights in the opportunity painting offers to reduce reality from 3 dimensions to 2. The editorial freedom given in the reductive process of painting is the flipside of her day-job. She has a healthy sense of cynicism, and relishes in a visual or verbal pun.
Most recently Kerrie has focused on a series of paintings of toys. The works highlight the juxtaposition of the intended innocuous nature of the commercial product versus the emotional and physical reality that the individual toy has had projected upon it by its caretakers. Does Mr. Potato-Head look stereotypically Jewish? Is Barbie interested in the advances of a jointed man made of wood? Do Cabbage Patch Esme's fixed doe-eyed stare, plastic pout and legs akimbo seem somehow perverse? As well as subject matter, there is playfulness in choice of materials - capturing plastic objects in paint, on wood.
