Blonde, Brown, Black, Red
Perez takes inspiration from drag queens, chotchkies, flamingoes, wearing your heart on your sleeve, late nights on the Jersey shore, construction zones on the highway, the color pink, fake flowers and other things that society deems unimportant or untraditional. She finds sincerity and power in that. Things, artwork especially, have become so aestheticized and perfected that the raw power it possesses is gone. Her work is left raw and unfinished to give it life. To show it has passed through her hands and is a living thing.
