The Last Hurrah
The vehicle and driver, although both past their use by date, clearly recommend Enviro Boxes, stacked next to the vehicle. Mechanical left overs stored within to be recycled or responsibly disposed of and kept out of land fill. Paraphernalia stored in the back of the old ute available for assorted use when required. Although humorous, this image also contains a serious message relevant to current times.
Bio-Data Encompassing both film and digital techniques, Kerrie is interested in the emotional response and feeling generated by the photographic medium. Time, place and memory converge . The power of an image to attract, carry a message, and, in turn, invoke a lasting impression upon the viewer, is paramount. Constraints within the photographic process are not limited by imagination and interpretation. A particular affinity with monochrome, Kerrie’s work continues to evolve through various aspects of the medium. Experimental and alternative processes, contemporary landscape, abstraction and more recently a focus on portraiture, provide an ongoing quest to her work.
