About the Work

Originally from Northern England, Kerry Hallam has lived and worked in the United States since the late 70s. He received his formal art education at the London University School of Art. He exhibits bright light and vivid colors as an emotional force while depicting nautical and European-flavored experiences. Hallam paints in a true impressionistic style with clear Fauvist influence.  His Mediterranean imagery is among his best-selling work, as well as some of his most passionate creations. His enthusiasm for the subject matter is strongly evident in all of his vivid seascapes and timeless, sun-drenched village scenes.

Collectors of Kerry Hallam’s work have long wondered from what source the artists gather his inspiration. They want to know if the locations portrayed in his work truly exist and what his connection is with these specific regions. With Hallam, each image he creates is less a specific location and more an amalgamation of the variety of pleasures he has experienced along the Mediterranean coast. Such is the case with “Afternoon Reverie”.  An image full of visual splendor that brings forth the beauty of a region that has become legendary for its ability to please the senses. “Afternoon Reverie” is a 27 x 36 – inch hand-signed enhanced serigraph on canvas. It is framed with archival materials and signed by the artist.

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”.
