Welcome to Kerry Shaw’s latest body of work, and these epic slices of heaven that have just floated into your brain. I can feel the weightlessness of my body being lifted up momentarily, and into the arms of these waves. The anticipation of the unknown over the next curve. Freedom.

Water Brother is a series of photographs that Kerry dedicated to her brother Stuart, who died in 2001. As she describes: “I’ve learned to rearrange my longing for my departed brother, by celebrating his existence through epic imagery. I now see him in all forms of waters’ change. He is part of the cycle, a body gone back to the molecular beginnings we all come from. He is a shape shifter and these are my visual meditations. Each detailed nuance and gesture of cloud and waters’ surface is a character. They are carefully painted into a choreographed, waterscape dance.”


Kerry Shaw is a Toronto-based commercial and fine art photographer, and all-round great gal. Her work debuted on CITY TV’s Fashion Television and won Naked in the House 2004, an annual nude photography competition and documentary showcasing Canada’s best commercial photographers. Her work was selected for inclusion in Magenta Foundation’s Carte Blanche, an anthology of Canada’s brightest photographers, and for the 2010, 2013 and 2014 editions of Flash Forward, an annual book, touring exhibition and international photo competition that highlights the best emerging photographers from Canada, the UK, and the US.

Both of these photographs will be printed in grand format, and hung in our booth at the fall edition of the Affordable Art Fair New York. They are also available for your collecting pleasure, right now.



We have some very exciting news to share with you! We’ve been accepted into the fall edition of the Affordable Art Fair in New York, we got a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts to help underwrite the cost of our booth, we got a press request from BLOOMBERG for pete’s sake, for a story they’re doing on “uncheesy art for your office”, and to top it all off – the AAF gave us booth A1 – the very first booth as you’re walking into the fair. I love my life, I love my life, I love my life.

If you’re in New York, or you’re planning to be, during the time the fair is happening let me know and I’ll send you tickets for free entry. Quantities are limited. Email with your request.

Have a great day everyone!
