Grayson Perry (1960) explores a very personal universe, which expresses itself in his works through countless autobiographical references and details. Perry enjoys diversifying artistic techniques, associating arts with crafts. Perry’s preferred technique is that of ceramics, with which he creates impressive and finely decorated vases. An observant approach is required to appreciate the technical complexity of these works and the humour of the imagery they feature. Perry’s representational method, termed “guerrilla tactic” by none other than himself, plays with effects of surprise and irritation. The variety in form featured in his creations invalidates numerous typical judgements, both moral and aesthetic, and calls them into question with a disarming insolence. While Perry’s work – depicting an eccentric and often chaotic universe – flushes out many obsolete ideals and is oblivious to society’s codes, it remains faithful to several values, above all tolerance.
