Grayson Perry

I hadn’t realised that Grayson Perry’s career goes back to the early 1980s, when he was already experimenting with a subversive attitude to folk pottery:-

I can imagine that the work didn’t go down too well in his pottery classes:-

Sales Pitch (1987)

WITH YOUR HELP I CAN TAKE POTTERY INTO THE ARENA OF COMMENT AND IDEAS, DARE I SAY IT, FINE ART:-

Untitled (1987):-

A Design which Implies Significance (1992):-

Artefact for People who have no identity (1994):-

The exhibition made me appreciate much better his experimental attitude to the medium and how form was as important as content.   Punk meets New Romantic.

In 1993/4, he was taken on by Anthony d’Offay and I suppose the rest is history.
