Artist Statement

My process is fluid, creating space for:  the experimental, inquisitive adult and the child with a five second attention span. The challenge when making abstract work is keeping a clear head with imagery and thoughts swirling through the brain. Interpreting all the information with color, movement and an open mind. With this approach wonder can still be found in the studio.

There are themes that define my waking hours and whose influence is undeniably woven into in the work. The most palpable, and one playing out in the studio of late, is an obsession with time - as a resource as a thief, as a constant shadow. We have all felt the anxiety of time running out, hopefully it fills us with a desire to create more.

I'm intrigued by the the perception of time as a very real phenomenon: the older we get, the less we experience the rush of novelty.  What does that mean for an artist in the fullness of middle age? Is it possible to see and to paint with a heightened sense of discovery? Does experience give depth and the ability to engage fully, and without self-judgement?  I'm counting on it.

Bio

Mark Perry is a painter residing in New York City and East Hampton NY.  Born and raised in Providence RI,  Perry studied Portraiture and Life Drawing, Evening Division at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), while working for ten years an an Electrical Draftsman for an architectural engineering firm in Providence.

In 1987, Mr. Perry entered the Providence Art Club's "Open Painting Show" and won the Milton Halladay prize for his portrait, "Bonnie." He also worked weekly with a small private group (most affiliated with or RISD alumni) throughout his twenties. In 1989, Perry moved to NYC and continued his studies at The Society of Illustrators and the Spring St. Studio. During this time He began spending time in Amagansett, leaving figurative work behind and entering the next phase which became his passion, the landscape.

In 2008, Perry received his first solo exhibition at the Surface Library Gallery in Springs, East Hampton. He became a member of the Artists' Alliance of East Hampton and for years was part of their annual studio tour.  Perry's paintings have since been in solo and group shows and Art Fairs in NY, Houston and East Hampton. He has had local press for his solo shows, work featured in national art and design magazines as well as paintings featured in sets for one major motion picture. 

In July 2017, Perry is preparing for a solo show at the Quogue Library, Quogue NY.
