Perry Obee works across multiple media including painting, drawing, and printmaking. In addition to making his own work, Perry is also a Tamarind Master Printer who collaborates with other artists to produce original works in printmaking. Perry is currently a Visiting Lecturer in Printmaking at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. His work addresses a struggle between perception and experience, awkwardness and beauty, approximation and precision, while playing with our abilities to decipher graphic form and space.
Obee is inspired by the liberated use of color and abstract visual language honed by Modern and Post-Modern artists, such as Matisse, Bonnard, and later, Diebenkorn. Additionally, he is influenced by the graphic quality and economic approach to image making found in Japanese and Chinese Landscape Painting.
