Painting, Booth 525
Stephen Perry’s paintings range from intimate to mythic. There is a story going on, but it’s not always apparent what it is. You will see different levels at work— social commentary, humour, symbols and dream-like imagery. There are recurring themes– animals, nature, humanity, technology… and the places and moments where they intersect.The creative approach has a graphic, “art-directed” feel. A variety of brushwork techniques create a “stylized realism” with smooth gradations and a subtle use of light and shade.Stephen Perry’s background includes graphic design, film making and 3D animation. He is, in addition, an award-winning commercial photographer.
