After Immigrating from Canada, Kerwayne Berry initially set up her studio in Newtown and has now relocated to southern Sydney to concentrate on her arts practice.
Kerwayne has become recognised for her subtle responses to the Australian landscape in mixed media works utilising a variety of mediums and techniques including printmaking and more recently, painting.
Kerwayne revels in exploring and capturing her experience of the texture and light of the watery edges of the unique rock, and land-locked, pools of Australia and the waterless landlocked interiors.
Through the use of colour, exciting textures and the expressive energy in her work she opens herself to the viewer to share in the emotions of the moment encouraging us to reconnect with nature and the elements.
Kate King, in describing Kerwayne's work, writes:
There is a rhythm playing through her work that is expressive of elemental forces of water, earth, air and fire.These landscapes found within rock pools and the waters edge appear to echo aspects of Turner’s landscapes in their rawness. ...timeless and beyond cartography ...a reflective surface into which viewers fall ...that quiet place at the core of being, (eliciting)...a sense of discovery, resisting interpretation, ...and ...indiscriminate in it's beckoning.
Kerwayne’s distinctive style expresses depth and energy through a sophisticated layering of visceral experience.
