Alumni Spotlight: Grahame Perry

Screen Shot 2015-04-29 at 9.18.28 PMGrahame Perry, CCSF Photography Department Alumni is in the upcoming group show at San Francisco Camera Work Long Term Survivor Project with artists Hunter Reynolds (New York), Frank Yamrus (New York .  He created some of his images on view while being a student at CCSF. The opening reception is June 4,2015 (details below).

San Francisco‐based artist Grahame Perry will present his series titled Materials of Survival. This ongoing body of work is a highly imaginative reconfiguring of the visual elements in the life of an HIV‐positive survivor. Perry’s at times fantastical depictions of pills, bottles, prescriptions, vials, and other paraphernalia provide a colorful but poignant visual vocabulary with which the artist tells his own story of struggle, uncertainty, memory, and survival. Perry’s work playfully combines graphic and symbolic photographic elements in the creation of abstract images that represent the very real process of the artist’s own quest for meaning and strength in the battle against HIV
