David Perry (Lauren's pick)

An artist whose work interests me is David Perry. Perry's works which i can appreciate most are his oil paintings. His goal is to elicit the expression and mood of his subjects using strong lines and bright colors. The abstract quality in many of his paintings are important in helping to show the expression of his work, allowing the viewer to make their own ideas of what exactly is being shown. Images of Perry's work can be seen at

I appreciate the combination of graphic and painterly qualities in this work. Bright colors and different techniques within the same canvas. Of course, he reminds me of Basquiat- but there is also a bit of artists like Dana Shutz and David Salle. What do we think of the text?
