About John Kerr

My work ranges through various media from watercolours and oil painting to photography.
The immediacy of photography allows me to explore many different areas from portraiture to landscape. I have always loved black and white photographs and still use traditional film.
Water has always fascinated me and many of my paintings depict water in its many forms and how the human figure relates to it. Distortion, reflection, movement and colour are subjects I often return to. The human figure, whether in, submerged or simply near water is a source of constant inspiration. I love to be by the sea.
I am inspired by many painters from Leonardo da Vinci and Giovanni Bellini to Lucian Freud and Stanley Spencer.
