Perkin, J.

After a long career as a research physicist, John Perkin trained and graduated at Hertfordshire College of Art and Design. Since then he has exhibited at numerous solo and group shows in Berkshire, the surrounding counties and several galleries in London. Although he has made prints and some sculptures, his main occupation is Painting in Acrylic on board. He also makes his own framing.
The subject matter of his paintings covers a wide range of human activity and landscape. He is particularly interested in the interaction of people in group activities such sport, shopping or prayer.
The style is basically figurative, but where appropiate, abstraction is employed to suggest movement or mood. Also, the unity of the subject may be enhanced by an indication of objects in the background, through those in the foreground which would normally obscure them. An example is given here in a self portrait of the artist and one of his paintings.

John Perkin sadly died in 2012.
