Grayson Perry’s work combines autobiographic references with wry social commentary on themes ranging from class and taste to the status of the artist versus that of the artisan or maker.

About

At the heart of Perry’s practice is a passionate desire to communicate his thoughts on aspects of contemporary experience.


This exhibition presents a selection of Grayson Perry’s ceramics and other artworks including tapestries, prints, bronze and iron sculpture. Working in traditional media, he is interested in how each historic category of object accrues intellectual and emotional baggage over time. Perry is a great chronicler of contemporary life, drawing us in to his exquisitely crafted works with beauty, wit, sentiment and nostalgia, whilst at the same time exploring issues within society and culture that instigate fear, uncertainty and anger.
