Kerri Evans completed her BFA at Rhodes University in 1990 where she graduated with a distinction in painting. Her work focuses on figurative subjects.

“A portrait study has many visual complexities and, through a process of careful observation and study, I have to come to grips with them. There is a constant dialogue between what I see and the marks I make. As if in a virtuous circle, the one action dictates the next, until a deeper level of conversation inevitably starts to unfold. It is a place of magic in painting. Perhaps a different kind of knowledge is accessed; awareness awakened between the myself the observer, and the observed. The paint is the language that reveals this story. In it exists my meaning, my process and the tremendous beauty of its potential.”
