Purdy Hicks is pleased to present an exhibition by Claire Kerr.
Her subjects are everyday and often peripheral things: a small bird, smoke from a match, motes of dust in a sunbeam. Her treatment of them however, is extraordinary. The paintings are miniature in scale and deliberately photographic in technique. However, the painted surface is only the beginning of each painting's conceptual investigation of its subject-matter and each work transcends its surface to become something much greater than the sum of its parts.
