Huesos


Now the fuss and palaver of Christmas and New Year is over Kerry is hard at work in the studio on the final composition in the series ‘Polar Bear’.

It is a highly complex narrative, set in a seal resort, somewhere in Mexico.
There are seals sunning, body surfing and just hanging out as all leisure seekers do. A sombrero wearing polar bear wanders the resort carrying souvenirs in a huge basket. There is a touch of violence with polar bear guards attacking a polar bear that is trying to eat a seal and there are whale and human bones in abundance.

Symbolism, metaphors, social comment and good old Kerry imagination abounds.

The composition is called ‘Huesos’ in Spanish (bones in English) and will be finished soon.
