|Description||Acclaimed as 'a visual and intellectual delight' (Time Out), Grayson Perry's Playing to the Gallery allows us to truly appreciate art as he answers the questions that might occur to us in a gallery but seem too embarrassing to ask. In Grayson's words, 'It's easy to feel insecure around art and its appreciation, as though we cant enjoy certain artworks if we don't have a lot of academic and historical kwledge. But if there's one message that I want you to take away it's that anybody can enjoy art and anybody can have a life in the arts - even me! For even I, an Essex transvestite potter, have been let in by the artworld mafia.' This set of 36 postcards, each featuring an original artwork from the book, embodies all the talent, humour, intelligence and relevance of Grayson Perry.|
|Author Biography||Grayson Perry is an English artist particularly known for his colourfully decorated ceramic vases. As a teenager he identified as a transvestite, and began to study art. He completed a BA in fine art at Portsmouth Polytechnic in 1982, having exhibited his first piece of pottery in 1980. He went on to develop his pottery skills and, following a solo exhibition of his work in Amsterdam, he was awarded the Turner Prize in 2003. He was appointed a CBE 2013 for services to contemporary art. Perry's alter-ego Claire, who wears colourful dresses and feminine clothing, makes regular public appearances. Perry's autobiography of his early years, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Girl, was published in 2006. Among his numerous television and radio credits are the documentary Why Men Wear Frocks; The South Bank Show; Imagine; All In The Best Possible Taste with Grayson Perry; and Desert Island Discs.|
