Negative Gearing

7 August31 August 2014

Chapter House Lane invites you to the opening of Oscar Perry’s latest installation, ‘Negative Gearing’. Join us for drinks from 6-8pm, Thursday 7 August.

Oscar Perry is a Melbourne based artist whose practice combines painting, sculpture, video and performance as a means to construct large thematic installations. Emerging from a collision of slapstick comedy, dilettantism, popular culture and art history Perry’s work investigates contemporary narratives and the mapping of intersecting histories. Often working within a predetermined conceptual framework Perry’s creative process has developed around notions of art as a ‘display’ or tableau, evoking reflections of studio as laboratory and art as artifact.

Oscar Perry was born in Kent, United Kingdom in 1988. In 2010 Perry completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting) at the Victorian College of the Arts, before undertaking a Post Graduate Diploma of Fine Arts (Painting) at RMIT in 2012. Perry has held a number of solo and group exhibitions since graduation, including shows at Utopian Slumps, Neon Park, Westspace, TCB, Fontanelle, Rearview and Tristian Koenig among other venues.

Negative Gearing will be on display until 31 August.
