About Hugh Kerr
I am a Hobart-based painter who has worked, mainly in oils, for about 15 years.
My influences are drawn from a lifetime of varied experience. I have travelled widely working as a geologist and environmental scientist in the UK, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.
Based on these experiences my art tends to involve subconscious examinations of topics surrounding science, nature and the environment.
Although primarily self-taught I have striven to develop my skills throughout my career with constant stylistic experimentation and a variety of taught courses. Individual and group tuition in oil painting received since coming to Hobart has been particularly helpful.
As well as evolving technically my work has developed thematically with a more recent emphasis on the development of working life and the development of modern society.
I held solo exhibitions in Hobart in 2014, 2015 and 2017.
