I was born. Since then I have scratched out drawings and daubed paint at a pretty regular pace.“
Kerry Beverly 1941-2019
Texas artist 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.
His was the output of a mind most at peace dreaming of the clouds, open spaces, and big skies of Texas and the desert Southwest.
With restless creative energy, Kerry embraced all forms — old and new. His substrates ranged from canvas to computer with
mediums flowing from acrylic and charcoal to pixels.
