Kerry Harding’s paintings are her own particular view of nature with paint remaining the hero. By years of exploring more experimental uses of this medium Kerry has a distinctive vocabulary of marks and surfaces that successfully interpret the textures and atmospheres of the Cornish landscape.
An experienced painter and skilled tutor, Kerry studied fine art at The Ruskin... School, Oxford University in 1991 followed by an MA in fine art at Falmouth and has been teaching at St Ives School of Painting since early 2014.
Kerry has exhibited extensively around the South West of England.
"The fields, footpaths, horizons, trees and seas I see again and again day after day. These are the motifs I repeat, rework, destroy and process. The manipulation of paint and the subtle surprises achieved through a cycle of putting on and taking off is what facilitates my surreal recreation of a place. Half remembered, half imagined, familiar places."
