A hardworking and prolific painter, Robert Perry’s works are in both private and national collections in Britain, Germany and France and are featured in “BBC Your Paintings. Uncovering the nation’s art collection, in partnership with PCF (Public Catalogue Foundation)”. He has held numerous solo exhibitions in Britain, France, Spain and Germany.
A landscape painter in the English tradition, Perry travels widely throughout Europe with his unique mobile “Field Studio” a purpose converted Renault Trafic van.
A prominent member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, he works exclusively on location, producing vigorous paintings and drawings of the European landscape and the effects wrought upon it by light, atmosphere, season, the passage of time and Man’s activities, agriculture, urbanization, industrialization and war.
Born, brought up and educated in the industrial zone of the English West Midlands, known since the Industrial Revolution as “The Black Country”, Perry’s exposure to its culture of hard work, engineering, problem solving and craftsmanship has profoundly influenced the development of his working practice and methods.
He is noted for the ingenious design and fabrication of highly specialized, purpose-specific equipment and his constantly evolving unorthodox and experimental media techniques.
Aspects of his adventurous lifestyle and unorthodox methods have been extensively covered on British and French Television: see “TV and Video” dropdowns.
Collections of his work and associated lecture programmes, are available for hire by public galleries, universities and arts institutions.
