About the WorkTo Kerry Hallam, painting is about expression, exuberance, and excitement. The wondrous qualities of Impressionism- the splashes of color, the rush of emotion, the emphasis on feeling over meticulous precision – capture the soul of a place. To Hallam it is more important that the flowers are there vivid in every way and spilling over the balcony railing.
Paris is the perfect subject matter for an impressionist work, and in “Paris Sunrise” the bright light of summer morning is a memory captured in paint using Impressionist form that becomes captivating, and unforgettable. “Paris Sunrise ” is an 25 x 21 – inch hand –signed enhanced serigraph on canvas.
About the Artist
An artist with a bold palette and a voracious appetite for life, Kerry Hallam is as refreshing and spirited as his paintings. The story of how he traveled from a daydreaming young artist from the north of England to a world-renowned expressionist visionary artist, living and painting in the continental US is one of great passion and perseverance. Hallam showed early artistic talent when he won a six-year scholarship to London University’s Central College of Art. After a formal art education under British master painters Leslie Cole, Patrick Heron, and Hans Tisdale, he completed his military service in the prestigious Gurkha brigade in Hong Kong and Malaya. Hallam’s talent was further acknowledged when he was selected for inclusion in Britain’s Royal Society of Artists in Watercolor. As a young artist searching for his own truth, Hallam immersed himself in the energy and passion of Southern France. The cradle of French Impressionism, with a legendary landscape, has given birth to many master artists through the ages. Acting upon this influence, Hallam says, “My ambition was to make definitive statements. Using van Gogh, Cezanne, Matisse, and Dufy as departure points, I would…build on their feelings, dance to their music”.
