JAMIE PERRY | Diversities

Simple compositions and minimal, yet striking imagery are the main bodies of what my paintings are built on.  I strive to make a statement, relying on the least amount of detail to tell the story, stripping down the painting to an almost composite abstraction, and then using light and space, focusing on one particular subject, to capture the viewer’s attention.

My aim is to celebrate the often forgotten icons of Americana ... symbols of American dreams and American lifestyles. 

A brief stint doing movie stunt work in earlier years inspired me to do my recent "divers and jumpers" collection.  Experiencing the thrill and exuberance of anti-gravity while performing stunts, I wanted to convey that in my work, along with a humorous touch thrown in.  If I can get at the least, a smile, as someone views a painting of a belly-flopping diver, suspended in mid-air, fully aware of the impending result of the dive, I've done my job.

My paintings are pictorial reflections of images and experiences of the past, where viewers can be transcended to a time and place where life was simple and unobstructed.
