Grayson Perry


Earlier this year I saw the BBC 'Imagine' documentary on Grayson Perry and his transvestite alter ego Clare, preparing for his current show at the British Museum. I was recently in Manchester and caught a smaller version of the BM show at Manchester City Art Gallery, which contains a selection of his pots and prints along with various items from the gallerys' collection. I love the combination of serious issues and whimsy documented in an unashamedly decorative way in his work. Hope to catch the BM show before it finishes.
