<strong>Grayson</strong> <strong>Perry</strong> is a great chronicler of contemporary life, drawing us in with wit, affecting sentiment and nostalgia as well as, at times, fear and anger. In his work, <strong>Perry</strong><br />

tackles subjects that are universally human: identity, gender, social status, sexuality, religion. Autobiographical references – to the artist’s childhood, his family and his<br />

transvestism – can be read in tandem with questions about décor and decorum, class and taste, and the status of the artist versus that of the artisan. <strong>Perry</strong> uses the seductive<br />

qualities of ceramics and other art forms to make stealthy comments about society, its pleasures as well as its injustices and flaws, and to explore a variety of historical and<br />

contemporary themes. He works with traditional media such as ceramics, cast iron, bronze, printmaking and tapestry, and is interested in how each historic category of object<br />

accrues intellectual and emotional baggage over time.
