About the Park...
In this group exhibition Kerry contemplated the idea that our collective fondness for a national icon the Kangaroo, seems to be somewhat ambivalent in recent years. Kangaroos have become so numerous that they are a danger to traffic in the suburbs, as major roads traverse the bush capital and development expands into the landscape.
In the paintings After Dark and Night Sight forms are reduced to flat planes of distinct colour overlayed with delicate colour glazing. Flashes of bright light in the midnight landscape allude to chaos for the ever-alert mob.
Two small geometric works (titled Helter Skelter and Fenced In) symbolize corralling of the kangaroos, wire fencing, firearms, shots and targets.
