Jared Perry was born and raised on PEI. He received his BFA from Mount Allison University where his studies focused on painting and drawing. Since graduating he has been active in the Charlottetown art community. Recently he has participated in events such as: Art in the Open, Art Battle, and various art exhibitions.
Vulnerable Encounters is comprised of paintings, drawings, and sculptures that Perry completed over the past year. The exhibition primarily depicts images of the human form and explores how a lack of control makes one feel vulnerable.
The emotions and relationships of the figures are told through their body gestures that strongly communicate their state of mind and create a narrative quality to the work.
Vulnerable Encounters will be on display at the Gallery @ The Guild 7 days a week from September 7 to 24. There is an opening reception on September 7 from 7 to 9 pm.
