“Valentine”  - by Kerry Anne Boer - Australian Artist
 

     This figurative piece is from the Artist’s “Point of View Series” and provides an assortment of visual flow options that can be explored from multiple view-points.
 

     It was inspired by Valentine’s Day, Lovers, Hearts, 1950’s fashion & the voluptuous female form. The soft, flowing feminine curves are enhanced by the cool and inviting polished onyx surfaces. They seduce the viewer and beg to be caressed.
 

     The Artist wants to challenge your imagination and taunts you with various shifting shapes, negative spaces & seductive surfaces.

 

     Her use of translucent “Honey” Onyx with a centrally installed solid Perspex core allows for a further interplay of refracted light through the translucent stone if placed directly over a light source.

 

“Megan”  - by Kerry Anne Boer  - Australian Artist  

 

     The muse for this figurative/abstract work was the well known Australian Super-model Megan Gale.

 

     Inspired by glamorous high fashion photo shoots, Megan on the catwalk & a fascination with the voluptuous female form, this figurative piece is from the Artist’s “Point of View Series” and provides an assortment of visual flow options designed to be explored from multiple viewpoints.

 

     All the sculptures in the Point of View Series by this Artist are designed to challenge your imagination and taunt you with liquid shapes in motion and the negative spaces created.

 

       The soft, flowing feminine curves of this piece are enhanced by the cool and inviting polished brown/black ‘Zaf’ marble surfaces.  They seduce the viewer, begging to be photographed and caressed.

 

     The Artist has purposely grounded this sculpture by echoing the catwalk with the introduction of a tapering polished black granite piece, completing the work.

 

"Tongue In Cheek"  - by Kerry Anne Boer - Australian Artist

 

     This figurative work was originally inspired by a throw away comment made to the Artist by a colleague.

 

     An immediate amusing mental picture was formed in her mind and the piece was born.

 

     The work was later driven to completion by the Artist’s ongoing fascination with these sometimes hilarious visualisations, brought to mind, when literally translating a figure of speech as well as her fascination with contortionists and her love of everything Cirque Du Soleil.

 

     It provides an assortment of visual flows designed to be explored from multiple viewpoints.

 

     The Artist expresses her twisted sense of humour by quite literally placing tongues in cheeks to highlight the sometimes absurd nature of figures of speech.

 

     Forms are deliberately melded into one another to the point where it is difficult to discern where one begins and another ends.

 

     The soft, flowing feminine curves are enhanced by the wax-like finish of the Bavarian Jurassic ‘Gold’ limestone surfaces.  They seduce the viewer, begging to be caressed.

 

     With this work, the Artist challenges your view on what you think you see by taunting you with shifting shapes, melting sensual forms & negative spaces.

 

Her twisted sense of humour completes the work.

 

“Jennifer”  - by Kerry Anne Boer - Australian Artist

    

     This figurative/abstract piece is from the Artist’s Point of View series.  The muse of origin for this work was Australian Super Model Jennifer Hawkins.

 

     As the work progressed towards completion, the form was also influenced by Jennifer Lopez & Jennifer Garner. For the Artist, this piece came to represent more….. it became all things Jennifer.

 

     The soft, flowing feminine curves of this piece are enhanced by the high lustre finish and the iridescent shimmering reflections of crystals under the marble surface.

 

     Viewers are seduced into an ongoing search for more of the pearl essence.

 

     The work provides an assortment of visual flows, all designed to be explored from multiple viewpoints as the Artist challenges your view on what you think you see by taunting you with shifting shapes, melting sensual forms & negative spaces.

 

     Her use of iridescent white marble to provide an enchanted, fairy-tale aura is deliberate and completes the work.

 

“Mother & Child”  - by Kerry Anne Boer - Australian Artist

    

     This figurative piece is from the Artist’s Point of View series.

 

     It captures a precious moment in time between mother and child as the child reaches out seeking physical contact with his mother and curls up his toes in joy as his tactile target is achieved.

 

     From her childbearing years this beautiful sculpture has captured a moment in the Artist’s memory of tender maternal love communicated between mother and child without words … pure unadulterated bliss for both of them as their souls connected on a basic and primitive level.

 

     The work provides an assortment of visual flows, all designed by the Artist to invite you into her world to share the multitude of remembered feelings elicited during this very intimate moment between a mother and child.

 

     She has deliberately used soft undulating shapes to meld the two related human forms together in an effort to convey the strong connection between a mother and her child and to provoke feelings in the viewer of tenderness, security, trust, serenity, happiness, contentment, satisfaction, pleasure and the endless power of maternal love.

 

     Choosing a honed finish for the marble is deliberate and provides a tactile extension conveying the softness of the moment and completes the work.

    

“Balancing Form #5”  - by Kerry Anne Boer - Australian Artist

This flowing figurative work is the Artist’s first piece to be produced from her ‘Human Movement Series’.

 

It was inspired by the flowing, extension movements of female rhythmic gymnasts in action.  Movement to music as well as flowing ribbons and geometric shapes play a great part in this series as the Artist is fascinated by the sport and all things ‘dance’ & ‘music’.

 

Body parts are deliberately elongated and stretched to emphasize the fluid movement and body extensions of this art. The soft, flowing feminine curves (a trademark of the Artist) are enhanced by the high polished finish of the ‘Black Ice’ marble.  They seduce the viewer, begging to be caressed.

 

The sensual forms & negative spaces within the work are a direct invitation by the Artist for you to see and feel what she sees and feels with this beautiful form of human movement to music.

 

The Australian ‘Black Ice’ marble selected for this piece is from the Chillagoe area near Cairns in far north Queensland. It contains small flakes of gold which can be seen on the surface.  The figure & the base are one solid unit.
