Hockley artist Emilia Perri’s large, brilliantly-hued, abstract paintings are often inspired by her travels, whether in the Canadian wild or the old streets of Europe. Her latest works evolved from a recent 375-kilometre canoe adventure on the Yukon River – a trip made possible by the Reed T. Cooper Visual Arts Award she received in 2016. Her technique involves multiple under and over layers of transparent paints, built up or scraped back to produce a remarkable textural depth reminiscent of the natural world. The lifelong painter and Ontario College of Art graduate owns Maggiolly Art Supplies in Orangeville where she offers art classes and where her own work can often be seen.  emiliaperri.ca
