Kerry’s first artworks were comics and the comic influence is still strong in his work. His art practice comprises of two major strands - a series of bronzes taken from an archive of ideas he formulated 8 years ago and the development of his Ceramic Break Sculpture Park opened in rural NSW in 2003.
Kerry came to Australia in 1995 with the strong commitment to sink or swim embarking on a career as a full time artist. “...the Park is a conduit to voice my outrage about the world today and to laugh. Out in the bush, I play the dual role of educator and artist to the locals that drop in. I love the bush.”
