Tessa Perutz

Highly influenced by Chicago Imagists such as Ed Paschke, Roger Brown, Barbara Rossi, Brooklyn-based artist Tessa Perutz creates exuberant paintings that incorporate text and simple iconography. The artist says of her work, “My paintings investigate the back-and-forth exchanges made between analog and digital modes of communication. I am fascinated by observing shifts in modern usage of language and symbols; interpreting how ideas are perceived and traded based on common typographical and conversational devices (numbers, letters, hashtags, punctuation marks, arrows, envelopes, etc). The paintings allow me to find a meditative and resolved place between the two ends of the spectrum—I can come to terms with my feelings on the proliferation of digital mass media by exploring and enjoying painting analog-based imagery.”


Perutz has shown her paintings in several group exhibitions throughout the United States and United Kingdom. She is the founder of Brooklyn-based Massif Central, a company that produces 100% silk scarves by contemporary artists.
