She recently took the decision to released her book illustrations as Unique Edition Prints – The Midnight Garden sold out rapidly before obtaining high values on the secondary market, her book illustration work is next to include Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie and The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton.

Kerry’s new release PEACOCK SPLENDOUR focuses on the complexion of a beautiful, male peacock’s feathers spreading, lightly and effortless through the territory of the painting. Kerry works in layers to build up depth and create more light; she also uses resin as a medium more than a vanish.

PEACOCKS SPLENDOUR is part of Kerry’s Unique Editions, whilst in essence they are prints, each one is in some way unique due to being precisely done by hand. She creates small 3D additions which are hand-worked individually and adhered to the print. The background is also hand embedded, and the work has resin hand-applied, making each print look like an original painting. IMPORTANT: KERRY DARLINGTON’S LIMITED EDITIONS ARE HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER.

PEACOCK SPLENDOUR entices its audience with the subtle character of the centred peacock submissively tilting its head to reveal his crown. Pieces of shimmering wood guide the flow of the piece. The feathers are bright, bold and bloom with colours, so no detail is missed.

Kerry’s abstract approach links to her youthful love of children’s books; the Welsh artist born in 1974, has a deep endearment for Enid Blyton books, predominantly The Faraway Tree. Kerry also felt inspired by Aurther Rackham’s intricate pen and ink work, creating original, sophisticated pieces. Following her degree in illustration she discovered Art Nouveau and the Pre-Raphaelite artists. She found this work to be hauntingly beautiful, this style still influences her ideas even today.

Overall PEACOCK SPLENDOUR is a splendid, enticing piece profound to light the atmosphere of a household with the light-hearted pleasure of childhood memories. If you are interested in the Splendid PEACOCK SPLENDOUR contact ARTWORX GALLERY IN NEWPORT SHROPSHIRE.
