UK-based Kris Mercer is an award-winning painter with an eclectic taste and has for over thirty years been working on abstract and representational works. She has a passion for abstract expressionism and the unexpected outcomes that it presents. Her new series seek to explore colour and shape through energetic, incidental brushstrokes. Dripping and pouring paint onto the canvas, she is motivated by probability and expectation as artistic tools. Her representational work, on the other hand, is traditional with a contemporary twist. A passion for architecture, a casual interest in people watching and a lifelong love of photography are the inspiration for many of the paintings. A limited palette of colours is context driven by scene. Her work is held in collections in the UK, USA, Europe and Australia. Short Bio Mercer studied Art and Design as a mature student at Mansfield College of Arts, leaving with a distinction in 1996. Although accepted on a Fine Art Degree course in Derby, she spread her wings and moved to Cyprus with her twin daughters to pursue her artistic endeavours. Returning back to the UK in 2000 she had been working on both figurative and abstract works. Gaining awards and recognition at home and in the USA.
