JAMIE PERRY, Featured Artist, booth 501
Jamie Perry(American b.1962) is a contemporary realist painter currently living in Riverside, CA. His works, which are exclusively on canvas, portray mainly solitary subjects featured within a minimal composition. Originally a commercial illustrator, his choice of medium is acrylic paint. Growing up in Southern California, Jamie attended classes at Art Center in Pasadena, California Art institute, Woodland Hills and California State University, Fullerton. His early paintings concentrated on the landscapes of Central California and Midwestern United States. Intrigued by the simplicity of vast panoramas, he was able to paint a story using the least amount of detail. Having spent Summers in New Mexico during the monsoon season, dark stormy skies and dramatic lighting were main elements in many paintings.
Perry's current works focus on the interaction of people and art, and oftentimes feature gallery patrons viewing minimally composed landscape and abstract paintings. He has participated in many solo and two-person gallery shows from Coast to Coast and his works are part of individual and corporate collections internationally.
