Oscar Perry

Oscar Perry is a painter who extends the expressive potential of abstraction
(including sculpture, text, spoken word and found images) to incorporate social,
historical and cultural dimensions. Social contexts around art making and art
exhibitions are central to his practice. Perry has initiated a number of curatorial
projects including Beach Marvin III, Crazy Arms Hotel, Melbourne (2018), Coq au
Vin, an exhibition space with an internationally-focused program in an outdoor
chicken coup in Daylesford (2015) and Das Boot (with fellow artist Esther Stewart),
an artist car boot fair as part of Next Wave Festival, Melbourne (2014). Perry was
included in the survey exhibition of contemporary Australian painting, Painting. More
Painting, at ACCA, Melbourne (2016).
