“I was born. Since then I have scratched out drawings and daubed paint at a pretty regular pace.”
Kerry Beverly 1941-2019
Kerry Beverly described his painting as animist—with images seizing on the “pervading life and will in nature far outside modern limits.”*
He spurned formal training in technique and composition. Instead, he interposed his love of classic American cinema and photography to inform his art.
With a restless creative energy that embraced all forms—old and new—his substrates ranged from canvas to computer with mediums flowing from acrylic and charcoal to pixels.
