A regular programme of artists & their work on show in our atrium
Paige Perkins is an American born artist based in London. Her work reflects a personal folklore where the borders between human and animal, fantasy and reality dissolve.
In a continuing search for enchantment, Perkins uses the act of drawing and painting as a means of mining the unconscious. What emerges as unexpected; sometimes dark unruly, like characters in a carnival where reality is subverted and there is play between the surface and what the surface hides. The paintings reveal a visionary world time and space unfold with a strange logic that springs form deeper sources including myths, pagan mysticism and fairytales.Instagram: paigeperkins7 Website: www.paigeperkins.co.uk
