Lot Essay

'The potency of Perry's work, its radical edge, is rooted in the conscious clash he sets up between his medium and message. If his forms are the very epitome of the middle-class drawing-room aesthetic, his spiky and explicit content undermines that, repeatedly and intentionally wrong-footing the viewer'

J. Klein, Grayson Perry, London, 2009, p. 225
