Hayley Perry’s layered and textured collage paintings appear to have a history, to belong to some time and some place. Using color, transparent and opaque materials, and various textures, Perry creates rich, inviting surfaces that excite the senses and invite viewers to contemplate their own physical and emotional place in the world.
Perry, a Fall River resident, is currently earning her M.F.A. in Painting from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
