Few sights in nature are as impressive as that of a peacock’s mesmerising tail feathers fully spread in its attempt to capture the gaze of a potential partner. It’s certainly a display to behold. Despite Kerry Darlington taking the slightly more mythical approach to the subject my referring to her brand new Spring 2015 pictorial release as ‘Phoenix Feathers’, we’re pretty much in agreeance here that the feathers in question (and therefore, bird) belong to that of a more familiar peacock. Albeit with some welcome Darlington artistic license for good illustrative measure.
Whether it is in actual fact one thing or another is open to conjecture, but what isn’t is the stunning administration of the compositional study by someone who’s rightfully considered as one of the UK’s leading practitioners in her chosen contemporary fine art genre. And who lives up to her billing on a regular basis. This Unique Edition is brought to you with hand embellished and glossed detailing throughout the surface area, while Darlington’s continually in-demand moniker is also found within. Limited to just 295 examples from launch, we are bracing ourselves for a surge of pre-orders.
