Hardback, colour illustrations, pp 48

Texts by Simon Wallis, Martin Herbert
Dan Perfect’s paintings have an overarching restless energy that permeates their dense compositions. Grounds and figures merge to depict a teeming internal world with an imperative to create, connect and situate disparate elements. The paintings include a tumult of ambiguous forms and allusions to lost toys, dream characters, masks, animals, foliage and half-remembered places, as though before our eyes myriad options are sifted and assembled to define a character for each work.
