My passion… painting! My subject…portraiture and the human form.  Using contemporary art practices I ask questions about the human condition through my paintings. I do not see my role as trying to answer philosophical, scientific, or poetic questions about human existence.  I observe and record what I see and feel using visual qualities that convey a sense of feeling from my subjects. This is what drives me to create the art that I do.

About Kerry Inkster

As far as I’m concerned there’s nothing better than applying it in it’s many forms, watching it move, blend, bleed, and watching it dry! I’m a professional artist and conceptually trained through the South Australian School of Art, I was born and bred in country South Australia – the daughter of farmers. I distinctly recall seeing news articles about Pollock and Warhol “on the TV” as a young teenager and thought artists only truly existed in The States. However I was “good at art” – as “misplaced” as it was in my environment – I loved it – only place I felt a sense of true self reflection, breath, and peace.

I began painting in 2001, and in 2012 I realised my dream of gaining a Bachelor of Visual Art, Specialisation Painting, with The University of South Australia / The South Australian School of Art. I was so good at studying art that I won the 2013 University of South Australia Medal for outstanding academic achievement in the Division of Education, Arts and Social Sciences. I was also selected and entered into The Helpmann Academy Graduate Exhibition in 2013.

I am interested in asking questions about the human condition through my figurative and portrait paintings and drawings. Mostly working from photographs and film stills, I have a particular interest in observing the female image and the cultural implications that these images represent. I have developed my style from hyper realistic beginnings to simplified shape and form with the influences of Expressionism and Pop Art. I have a particular interest in colour, tone, composition, texture, and movement – and I focus on these elements within my figures and faces.
