This is the first piece I saw by Perspicere, in September at Red Gallery, Shoreditch. An amazing, intricate, unique take on street art that totally blew me away. What can only be made with a number of hours and 100’s of metres of thread, I’d never seen anything like it before.
Thread Piece: Cotton thread, metal nails and wood. 28 x 22 x 4cm. Signed on reverse. Edition of 1.
When I contacted Perspicere, he was preparing some small pieces to sell to help fund an upcoming show, and offered me a choice of pieces.
Through a diverse spread of acrylic paintings on canvas and found objects to more minimalistic ink drawings on paper, Perspicere creates a hybrid composite of abstraction and representationalism, rich in geometric shapes and simulated forms and with draftsman ship at the core.
