Enthusiasm for his art is fully evident in Kerry Hallam’s vivid, windswept seascapes and timeless, sun-dappled village scenes. Strongly inspired by the Fauves, Hallam has a strong affinity for the 19th-century French Post-Impressionists, Cezanne and Van Gogh.
Kerry Hallam’s lifetime of travels has continually called him to the sea. As he found his way to many exquisite and clandestine ports of call, one by one left their palpable splendor in his heart and served as a catalyst for his artistic muse. In many ways, these intriguing passageways unveil the soul of a country like nothing else, reminding us with their eclectic mix of sound and sense the urgency and passion of those who came before.
“Paradise Point” exemplifies Kerry Hallam's ability to connect with his landscape, capture its inner charm and convey both successfully to the viewer. The town of Tiburon, perched overlooking San Francisco Bay, enjoys stunning views and is much admired for the beauty of its vistas as it is for its relaxed and luxurious lifestyle. Hallam strikingly captures the sheer beauty of the distant horizon with its rolling hills and far off view of the powerful Golden Gate Bridge, as well as providing us with a glimpse of real life in this "city by the bay".
“Paradise Point” is a 36 x 29 – inch hand-signed enhanced serigraph on canvas.
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”.
