Gina Bacon Kerr

"In an overt sense, I view all of my work as exploration and attraction to what elicits emotion and enjoyment for me.

As I look inward, I see it all as guttural attempts to sing.

From media to media, the quest for emotional connection during the image- making process lends my work a common voice.  Each attempt finds the same puzzle:  back and forth, light and dark, weight and lightness, front and back.  I am constantly asking myself how best I can dance to this music.

As it is turning out, in my life, this is just what is.  This is what happens when I sit in my studio and lay my hand on the next closest thing.  Something is sung into an experience that connects me with you."
