  • Catalogue Essay

    Perry is best known for his ceramic works, creating classically shaped vases decorated with figures, objects and text, which stand within a tradition stretching back for centuries. The revealing and often dark subject matter depicted on these pots is at first disguised by their colourful, decorative nature. His chosen topics include autobiographical images of himself, his transvestite alter ego Claire, and his family, as well as references to political events and an investigation of observed cultural stereotypes.
