Artist Talk with Rachel Perry

Join us September 28th at 5pm to chat with artist Rachel Perry and discuss her latest show…

Night Light 

About the Artist:

Rachel Perry is a wife, mother, teacher, and painter from Lafayette, LA. While not a Cajun by heritage, she is deeply rooted to Acadiana and draws continuous creative inspiration from its people and culture. Her art is best described as whimsical, somewhat surreal acrylic painting, with subject matter that includes landscapes, people, places, and the juxtaposition of familiar yet rarely-combined images. Rachel has shown her work at various local galleries, and hopes more of her paintings can venture from the walls of her own home to the walls of the world.

About Night Light:

Rachel Perry has created a body of work including paintings and new sculptures focusing on the inherent whimsy of the way light plays against the surrounding nocturnal landscape. She places emphasis on color in her paintings with a perfectly primitivist and surrealist approach, while playfully juxtaposing familiar images specific to time and place.

Depicting light on canvas is difficult. So, in my paintings, I have made my own rules for how light behaves, specifically at night and the hours approaching it. The colors, shades, and subjects I deemed most interesting have taken the focus. Certain realistic details have been altered or even discarded, all to better show what I see as beautiful in the nocturnal sky.
