Although I haven’t been a vigilant blogger I’m still keeping the art happening.

For those who want to see my work up close and personal I am part of a group who have a small space in The Emporium (the old david jones building in Newcastle mall) called Fancy That. I’m there Friday mornings 10-1.30 with a selection of my work as prints, a couple of paintings and other arty items can be viewed. Anyway pop in sometime.imageimage

But to update on my actual practice is the point here. Other commitments over the past 2 years have impacted on my momentum but I’ve hung in there mainly painting, maintaining my reviews so therefore watching art and last year I became interested in Instagram as a form of creating compositions. Still life photography now plays an important part in my practice. You can follow me on kerri_smith_art . I also find it an easy alternative to show my latest art.

This painting recently featured at Gallery 139 in a dog exhibition.

My style is becoming more abstracted and I endeavour to achieve appealing juxtaposition of paint , texture and colour. This sometimes happens quickly and its best to stop before I ruin the work. Other pieces I’ve been adding paint for years .
