MARK PERRY - REAL ABSTRACT

Real Abstract - Mark Perry at The Gallery at Lillian August in Nowalk Ct. March, 2017. 

There are two large works in the show with slightly different width dimensions and when installing I accidentally switched the planned locations. As I was under time constraints I went with the change. It quickly became apparent that the paintings were better served in the new layout. The first image below shows one of the large works that I am referring to in the center.

The image below, shows a small painting titled Field, 2009. I varnished this painting at the recommended one year after dry time and the surface is quite satisfying. When hung in this location the light hitting it made it literally sparkle. A Lillian August Designer noticed it as well, we were both pleased.
