At a young age I was introduced to optical illusions and since then have always had an appreciation for them. I am fascinated by how people can see different things even if they are looking at the same object or image. For example, a simple idea of a cloud formation can be interpreted in a variety of ways; one might say he sees a horse where another might say she sees a dog. By creating an abstracted form using different textures, bright colors and a variation of brush strokes, Perry forces the viewer to question and interpret what he or she sees.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
