Painter James P. Kerr’s impressionist-inspired canvases capture sun-filled moments of scenic locations such as Florida, the Caribbean, New England, and North Carolina. Responding to the vibrant colors of nature, Kerr has developed a high-key palette implemented with loose, open brushwork. He primarily works with oils but has explored various media, including watercolors, graphite, pastel, and lithographs. In addition to landscapes, Kerr is also interested in exploring the human form through figurative works, portraits, and studies of human activity. His lively depictions of jazz musicians honor the resilient spirit of the New Orleans jazz community after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
