Sumi Perera //

Her work is an amalgam of influences of her native Sri Lanka and the United Kingdom, her adoptive country, working as a doctor, scientist and artist (MA, Camberwell College). Slight variations on the theme are used to generate 'unique multiples', while blurring boundaries between the artist/artisan, orient/occident and the past/present. Her complex work combines a wide array of printmaking methods with stitch and manually-controlled laser cutting techniques.

She exhibits internationally and is the recipient of prestigious awards in the USA and South Korea as well as the United Kingdom. Her works are held in Tate Britain, the Victoria & Albert Museum, Guanlan Museum, China, Grafisk vaerksted-Naestved, Denmark, Sakima Art Museum, Japan, the printROOM in Rotterdam, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, and the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Sumi Perera RE MSDC SGFA is a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (RE), Society of Designers Craftsmen (MSDC), Society of Graphic Fine Art (SGFA) and the 62 Group (an International Textile Artists).
