"Grayson Perry" Book by Jacky Klein, Signed by the Artist

About

"Grayson Perry", by Jacky Klein, published by Thames & Hudson, 2010. First paperback edition in 256 pages with over 300 colour images. Signed by Perry. A lovely volume, in very good vintage condition with only slight signs of wear in line with age, including a very slight twist to the form and faint mark on back cover from storage (see images). Grayson Perry, Royal Academician, is a celebrated English artist and the curator of the 2018 Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy in London. Here are the Royal Academy's words on the artist: Perry studied at Braintree College of Further Education from 1978-1979 and graduated from Portsmouth Polytechnic in 1982. He was awarded the Turner Prize in 2003. He works in a variety of mediums but is best known as a ceramicist. There is a dissonance between the conventional forms of his vessels and the depictions that adorn them. He uses imagery and text to chronicle social concerns, his own formative experiences and to tell the story of his alter ego, Claire. The tone of his narratives is psychologically complex and often caustic. Although he uses traditional methods to make his pots, he employs a range of techniques, such as embossing and photographic transfers, to create intricate, animated surfaces. Jacky Klein (author) is an art historian and writer specializing in 20th century and contemporary art.
