“Like Slab Block, Village House presents an idea of a precarious constructed unit, but at the opposite end of the architectural scale,” explains Peri. “I never start with a sketch or an idea, the paintings always come about from trial and error, looking for something new that seems to hold the picture surface in tension, I think a lot about the edges of the canvas and supporting them. The surface gets a kind of lacquered quality from the many coats of spray paint, but because I paint quickly, correcting and painting over things, it also gets very heavily worked and pitted. There’s this feeling of alternately revealing and hiding when I paint.”
