Louise Kerr: Canis Lupus familiaris

Fri 6 December 2019, - Sun 2 February 2020,

“The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.”
Agatha Christie

Blue Mountain-based sculptor Louise Kerr playfully explores the ancient relationship between humans and dogs, a bond that can be traced back thousands of years, most notably with the discovery in 1914 of the Bonn-Oberkassel dog buried alongside two humans.

Drawing inspiration from Papua New Guinean and African sculpture, Kerr uses the coil-basket technique to create three-dimensional dogs that are painted and enhanced with very fine twine and clay. The resulting idiosyncratic creatures impart her personal perspective within the rich history of our relationship with dogs, both domestic and wild.

Kerr has been exhibiting since 1979, after completing a Diploma of Visual Arts at Alexander Mackie College of Advanced Education. She is represented by King Street Gallery on William, Sydney.
