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 artefact.
