Each week, the Orlando Museum of Art will be highlighting a different artist at the In-Focus: Gallery Talks from the 2022 Florida Prize in Contemporary Art exhibition. The tour and discussion will be led by an OM°A curator.
For August 3, they will be highlighting Gavin Perry. FREE with paid gallery admission! Pre-registration is encouraged.
Gavin Perry (b. 1971 Philadelphia PA) received his BFA from the Tyler School of Art in 1996. Upon graduation, he moved to Miami, FL, where he now lives and works. For over 20 years, Gavin Perry has maintained a rigorous, labor-intensive approach in his art practice. Through process-based methodology, he creates a broad array of abstract paintings and sculptures. Primarily made of resin, Perry eschews more common “art” materials for industrial ones to create works that navigate the boundaries that codify painting and sculpture.
Perry has been included in group exhibitions in Basel, Switzerland; Milan, Italy; Marseille, France; and New York. In 2012, Perry was a finalist for the first annual Pratt Prix, an award for contemporary painting, in Paris, France. He is a recipient of the prestigious 2009 South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship. Perry has had his work critically reviewed in various publications including Flash Art; Art in America; Art Papers; Art Nexus; the Miami Herald; and The New Times Miami.
