John Perry

John Perry has been an artist since he was very young, but first developed as a painter in order to cope with the stress and failure he experienced after dropping out of college. Through the encouragement and support of loved ones, he returned to the university to pursue an art degree, where he began experimenting with mark-making tools and techniques that would later form the method for his body of work.
After receiving his BFA, Perry relocated to Nashville, where he set up a studio, and painted for a number of years. Now he travels all over the country, frequenting Los Angeles, CA and New York City. His work has been featured in multiple solo exhibitions, and be found in private collections throughout the United States.
What can only painting do? This is not only the foundation of Modernism, but for a painter today, an essential question loaded with mystery and gigantic onsequences. This is his way of entering into that conversation, now hundreds of years old. This is his way of searching for more opportunities to ask that question, not answer it. This is an experiment in color, figure/ground relationship, and aesthetic to discover qualities specific to painting. If John’s work is about anything, it is about painting.
