Iain Perry (Print Garage) is an artist and screenprinter creating deeply layered, colour saturated, slow motion screen prints.
The image generation is a slow process of experimentation, of trial and error; collecting imagery, developing patterns and overlaying all the different elements until new and intriguing relationships emerge.
Iain’s work borrows language from other art forms, film and photography, poetry, electronic music and rave culture – amalgamating, mixing and remixing, offering up familiar signs and signifiers but now refracted and reflected, elusive and allusive, all lightly seasoned with a slightly understated degree of subversion. Layers of fragmented iconography and geometry coalesce on the paper, like motes of dust trapped in a beam of light teasing us with a cheeky glimpse of a much bigger gestalt.
The resulting collection is a series of paeans to pigment, a psychedelic hallelujah to the handmade and handprinted, colour and tone poems that are a tiny bit joyful.
