Perry Obee MFA '09
Perry Obee has a B.F.A. in Painting and Printmaking from Ohio Wesleyan University. He also did postgraduate studies at Colorado State University. Although working from strict observation his vertiginous spaces nonetheless suggest abstraction. “The impetus for a given painting is a visual cue, and I look for complex and confusing visual phenomena—that is, reflections, perspectives, and unique lighting. I regard the role of intuition highly in my work. Instinct is as much a part of observation and the act of painting as is intellect,” he says of his work.
