Mark Perlman — Big Climb

Artist Statement

Although there is seldom a pre-conceived image that I start with, there is a clear determination of where I want to travel with each painting. It is rather like being blindfolded and asked to walk around the land you have lived on most of your life. Also, imagine cliffs surrounding all the exterior edges. Although there is a familiararity of the space you have walked many times, there is the danger of going too far in any one direction.
