Perren exhibits work that shows his transitions between his encaustic and acrylic paintings from 2016.
Jean Cocteau wrote “Art is the marriage of the conscious and the unconscious.” This is a quote in which I am in complete agreement. Although there are many subtle variations of statements I can make about my paintings, drawings, and sculpture over the years, this idea is a unifying thread that connects my work. I feel artists that use forms of automatism and embrace the unconscious in the act of letting go in collaboration with decisions made in the conscious mind have a pathway to create a uniquely personal statement.
About the Artist:
Jeffrey Perren lived and had studios in New York City, Miami, and Santa Fe where he currently resides.
While living in NYC Jeffrey was represented in Soho and in Harlem by Atelier International Art Group where he had solo and group exhibitions. During this time he also participated in group exhibitions with several other galleries and was invited to Austria for a solo exhibition at Kunst im Raum.
In Miami, Jeffrey was an associate artist and worked with the Bakehouse Art Complex (BAC). During this time his work was included in several gallery exhibitions and an exhibition at the Miami Children’s Museum. He participated in 2 benefit auctions.
Jeffrey has lived and worked in Santa Fe several times in his life. Arriving in Santa Fe and experiencing the space and the quiet it afforded him, his focus was not exclusively on painting and drawing, but now once again included sculpture. Working without the distractions of a large city his work evolved into a more personal vision. Jeffrey credits his returns to the Land of Enchantment to the creative energy of Santa Fe. He currently has his studio here in Santa Fe and exhibits at several galleries.

Two green reporters and rivals working for the Washington Post, Bob Woodward (Robert Redford) and Carl Bernstein (Dustin Hoffman), research the botched 1972 burglary of the Democratic Party Headquarters at the Watergate apartment complex. With the help of a mysterious source, code-named Deep Throat (Hal Holbrook), the two reporters make a connection between the burglars and a White House staffer. Despite dire warnings about their safety, the duo follows the money all the way to the top.
“It provides the most observant study of working journalists we’re ever likely to see in a feature film.” Roger Ebert
