Textural exploration inspires B P Collins LLP
B P Collins LLP is proud to announce that the Ian Johnson Suite will now be hosting a small selection of work by the renowned artist Warren Kerley.
Marlow based Warren began his career by studying design and illustration at the North Herts College of Art and Design in the 1980's. His studies uncovered a fascination with surface texture that would later inspire Warren to explore abstract texture methods as a vehicle for expressive abstract art.
Warren has just completed residencies at Henley Festival, Luton airport and John Lewis and likes to create bespoke commissions for his discerning clients. This exhibition, entitled 'Isolated Textures', features strong abstract impressions captured on canvas by way of acrylic texture techniques. This method results in stunning isolated abstract structures that reflect mood and feeling in a particular moment in time.
Method to the madness
Warren is renowned throughout the art world for his exploration of texture. His method demonstrates a healthy respect and an in-depth understanding of how multiple layers can be constructed in different ways to craft diverse, tactile surfaces.
To construct each piece Warren begins by sketching his intent on paper before layering custom made wooden stencils onto canvases ready to paint. This method allows him to build layer upon layer of specially mixed resin and cement in isolated areas to create his desired outcome.
Once the foundations are built, each piece comes to life with explosions of vivid iridescent and metallic hews, forged together with confident brush and palette strokes until a new landscape of abstract texture is born.
The art will be displayed in the suite till the end of spring. For a full price list or further information about Warren's work please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
