NICHOLAS PERRY is a Milwaukee based artist and a graduate of UWM(PSOA). His paintings challenge historic ideas of representation through tactile, colorful, and sometimes absurd collages of figures and imagery. Perry's work has been exhibited in numerous Wisconsin based galleries, museums, and will be featured in 2018's Midwest edition of New American Paintings.
Manipulation of traditional practices without negating their inherited histories. Slovenly constructed portals aim to traverse practical depictions in favor of a seemingly fantastic and imagined soil. Rehm’s and Perry’s practices move in side-step, creating otherworldly works. Both of which distorting minutia, harvesting a greater meaning of familiarity through diacritical marks, gestures, and imagery.
