In this infusion of expressionism and pop art, I wielded acrylics and spray to capture the essence of liberation. The semi-abstract figure's sweeping gestures and the dynamic flow of colors evoke a sense of unrestrained vitality and the purity of authentic expression. This painting is an ode to the spirit's resilience, bursting with energy to invigorate any space with its passion and zest for life. With the swishing of the arms, and the model's direct gaze, it gave me pause to name it after a line in the novel "The Wanderess" by Roman Payne. An uplifting message for any person breaking free of others expectations and constraints.

Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia
My name is Kerry Inkster and I am an artist and yoga teacher living in the remote tropical city of Darwin, in the Northern Territory, Australia. The world of women swimming underwater features strongly in my work. My paintings explore the female figure and face through poetic symbolism, paint itself, light, colour, and personal journal. I am particularly interested in capturing feelings and in the water’s ability to foster healing, transcendence, escapism, and sanctuary. My paintings have a distinctive, bright palette with saturated tones and contrasting light, and I work predominantly in acrylic on large-scale canvases. I use Notan principles, a term derived from the Japanese language, literally means “light-dark balance.” I find it to be an excellent tool for simplifying the composition of complex scenes and to see value instead of colour. This encourages my exploration of colour, employing Paul Gauguin’s synthetist style, where I aim to synthesise three features in my work; the outward appearance of natural forms; my feelings about my subject; and the purity of the aesthetic considerations of line, colour, and form. My process involves working on each painting individually, so each one is unique in form, colour, and emotion. My paintings tread boundaries between pop art and expressionism, realism and abstraction. I strive to articulate a felt sense in physical form. My mission is to uplift women – this is the engine that fires my entire practice.

Strong enough to let it in
Afternoon swim in my Louboutin’s
All the light we cannot see
Feel a river moving in you
Close your eyes. Clear your Heart.
Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.
Isn't it a funny thing
Cause I am a Superwoman, Yes I am.
I give you my hand and welcome you into my dream
Loved you Presently
Had I the Heavens - Study in tone
