Eve Perry is a Brooklyn-based artist. She has masters-level training in art history and has earned an MLS at Pratt Institute. As a collection information specialist, Eve builds digital cataloguing systems that document comprehensive bodies of work by artists including Joan Mitchell and Ray Johnson. Eve draws inspiration for her paintings from the natural world as it is re-imagined through human intervention. Her subject matter comes from day-to-day observations such as the landscaped sidewalks of Manhattan, botanical gardens, and potted flower arrangements. Her work embraces the fetishization of plant life as home decor and its use in repeated patterning for textiles and wallpaper. Eve uses Photoshop techniques to isolate disparate elements of color, texture and form taken from her iPhone snapshots of plants. From these collection of formal elements, she builds digital collages that serve as the compositional basis for her paintings.
