"There is safety in the small fish bowl… but is that all there is? Is freedom worth taking the risk of leaving safety? After all, there are barracuda lurking in the waters.

ART IS...  a story... or a suggestion of a story. Art is something that can be a jumping off point...make you think... make you consider another point of view perhaps. Art is NOT something that comes from the head. Then there is something missing... it loses heart and soul... and "coolness. And then... just when you think you have found the secret to creating good art it may slip away just like that. And so, you go back to the easel, start again. Once more a beginner. Art is not easy."

Paintings of Canadian artist Stephen Perry range from intimate to mythic. There is a story going on, but it’s not always apparent what it is. You will see different levels at work— social commentary, humour, symbols and dream-like imagery. There are recurring themes– animals, nature, humanity, technology… and the places and moments where they intersect. The creative approach has a graphic, “art-directed” feel. A variety of brushwork techniques create a “stylized realism” with smooth gradations and a subtle use of light and shade.

The artwork is sold in perfect condition.
