Kerry is best known for her installations and sculptures that infuse toy-like imagery with sinister and bathetic undertones. Her figures seem superficially contained but give off turbulent atmospheres of loneliness and dread through precise expressions that recall the work of Alex Katz.
As part of 'Let's Get Married Today' at Grizedale Kerry staged ‘Mull of Kintyre’, a performance involving a gigantic crow conducting a ritual mating dance to the song Mull of Kintyre, performed by Roger Orwin. Review in 2019 Frieze 200 edition https://frieze.com/tags/kerry-stewart
