The internationally renowned British artist Grayson Perry, winner of the Turner Prize in 2003, is a vivid chronicler of contemporary life. His work abounds with autobiographical references, which can be read in tandem with issues relating to class, taste and the status of artists and artisans. Packed with vivid images, and a number of gatefold pages, this book provides an overview of Perry’s fascinating career focusing on his work in a variety of media ranging from ceramic and tapestry to embroidery and print.
The acclaimed art historian and biographer Jenny Uglow provides a personal insight into Perry’s work, and an interview between Perry and Tim Marlow, the RA’s Artistic Director, reveals the many sides of Perry’s personality. This book accompanies the exhibition ‘Making Meaning’, curated by Erin Manns and the first exhibition in a three-year collaboration between The Gallery at Windsor and the Royal Academy.
