Richard Perry


Graduating from a Fine Art degree at Leeds Polytechnic in 1981, Richard Perry is a Midlands based artist using geometric language to explore notions of weight and balance through sculpture. Harnessing both intuitive judgement and premeditated design, Richard’s practice juxtaposes organic freeform and measured geometric sculpture to create illusory forms that strive to break free from an underlying rationale.
“I am carefully attuned to the material and its potential, constantly seeking new possibilities in the process of transforming stone into arresting sculptural forms. I am drawn to instances where similar transformational processes happen in nature, or at the juncture of the natural world and our effects on it. The work is essentially abstract, but has an underlying romanticism.”
