Janette Kerr @ Sladers Yard

10 March 2018 - 7 May 2018

Janette Kerr is the ultimate sea painter. Her bold, expressive, exploratory work begins outside with the salt in her paint and the sea heaving and crashing around her, the wilder the better. Not only will she be there on the rocks or in a boat painting and drawing, responding directly to the elements, she will also have studied the archives and talked with the locals, looking for the stories of people who have lived, fished, explored or even died there. For an artist who works alone in her studio or on site, she is exceptionally collaborative, working on projects with environmentalists, oceanographers, meteorologists, scientists and other artists to enrich her active engagement with the places she paints and the elements she encounters there, as in North: New Works from Shetland to Svalbard.
