The Crystal Ship 2023: Mural by Pat Perry

From colors and lines to strangers on the beach.

Pat Perry, still quite young, often starts from photography, but the way he tackles it is often very figurative. This creates a wonderful tension field that almost inevitably attracts attention. So too in this work, which obviously points to the sea (including beachgoers), but also contains subtle references to Ostend artists such as James Ensor and Léon Spilliaert. Also typical of Perry: the partitioning of the work into different spheres.
