Hugh Kerr is a British born artist who lives in Hobart, Australia and works mainly with oil paint, pen and ink.
His influences are drawn from a lifetime of varied experience, travelling widely and working as a geologist and environmental scientist in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.
Of particular interest to him are politics, the mechanics of human society and our collective impact on the environment which he explores using allegories formed form subconscious imagery. His work is cerebral, politically aware, and surreal.
He has held a number of solo exhibitions in Tasmania since 2014 and has been involved in group shows in Australia and the UK.
