Edited by Jacky Klein
Concentrating on Grayson Perry’s most recent works, this volume marks the further development of the Turner Prize Winning artist’s highly complex pottery, as well as his iconic maps, and the ground-breaking architectural design of his 2013 House for Essex.
This is the third, updated monograph of this charismatic artist’s work, edited by the writer and art historian Jacky Klein, whose accompanying text is sober, erudite, and informed. Ever present, however, Perry’s own lucid commentary supplements the copious photographs of his art.
Insight is given to the complicated and diverse inspiration for Perry’s work, influences as diverse as African Power figures, mediaeval altarpieces, and traditional American quilts. But whether drawing on ancient ritual and religion or the mores of contemporary life, Perry’s often contraversial commentary on modern society is both sharp and sound.
'Clear, generous and insightful... In unravelling the mystique behind Perry, Klein shows why this unlikely artist is, in fact, most likely a national treasure.' Financial Times
