Artist’s Statement

​

“After working in black and white for many years I wanted to work in color.  Fran Weston Hoyt introduced me to the painting principles of her teacher Frank Vincent DuMond (1865-1951), a noted American Impressionist painter.  Dumond developed a carefully controlled premised prismatic palette to capture the effects of light in nature.  

​

For the past twenty-nine years I have been working in the landscape tradition of painting in the open air exploring new ways to express the poetry of light through the changing seasons.”

-Gil Perry

Biography

​

Gil Perry’s oil paintings use detailed lines and controlled compositions to portray the artists direct observation of the changing light of the landscape.  Perry achieves these deep fields of luminous color with a studied and patient process, and applies many layers of pigment on a canvas.  

​

The artist worked in the medium of drawing almost exclusively for three decades, and can now be seen to work with tonal palettes of color as well as prismatic.  

​

Perry pursues painting in the open air with a dedication which brings him both to remote locations to seek new inspiration, and to return to favorite vistas year after year.
