Julian Perry - Where Grew The Tree
Disintegration, loss and the tragedy of Climate breakdown provide the context and inspiration for the artist’s haunting new paintings.
Perry’s debt to the British landscape tradition compounds the poignancy of the works. The irony that it is Suffolk, county of Constable and Gainsborough that is dissolving into the sea, is not lost on the artist.
For the first time Perry will include an installation of three-dimensional works that echo the traditional Diptych form: two paintings and a mirror combined within transparent boxes.
Since Perry’s last show at Austin Desmond in 2012 his work has attracted considerable international attention, including exhibiting at the 2015 Venice Biennale and featuring in papers published by the Paul Mellon Center for studies in British Art at Yale.
