“This is a very grid-like painting but the grid seems to be covering a darker hole which threatens its integrity,” says Peri. “The hole is a patch of gloss black over the rest of the surface which is matt black. This difference in paint finish is something I use a lot, it seems to posit depth - often there’s a grid at the bottom of the paintings too which indicates a rudimentary perspective. I think of that kind of illusionism as both a formal element to create interior space and a sort of armature to be disrupted.”
