This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from

Dennis Perrin, on being an artist:

"I see my task as that of revealing beauty to those who take the time to see it. We each have our own vision; I have chosen to see beauty as revealed by light. Each painting that I undertake, regardless of subject, is an attempt to capture an image that is both defined and unified by light.

"I feel strongly that Nature provides us with the highest aesthetics. I always look to nature for my subject, my inspiration and my artistic conclusions. I do not, however, believe that beauty lies only on the surface of things. True beauty is contained within the whole of something, starting within its core, its spiritual center, and revealing itself only to the eye that is sensitized by a love of all life."

About the Artist

Dennis Perrin studied with Dell Weller and Auzeklis Ozols at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art, where he won the 1984 Landscape Painting Award. He began painting professionally in 1985, exhibiting his work widely and receiving numerous awards and purchase prizes. Perrin's work has been collected throughout North America, as well as in Europe and Australia. Among his many collectors are the Zigler Museum, The Maier Museum of Art, City National Bank of Louisiana, The Entergy Corporation, and Dale Brown, former head basketball coach, Louisiana State University.

The trademark and signature of Perrin's work is a masterful treatment of light. Whether the subject is a lithe figure clad in white, a sumptuous floral still life, a moody interior, or a quiet pond dotted with water lilies, light is the dominant feature of a Dennis Perrin painting. In this he follows the great tradition of the Boston School of Painting that of Edmund Tarbell, Frank Benson and John Singer Sargent. Other favorite influences include Jan Vermeer, Thomas Dewing and Maxfield Parrish.

By marrying sound academic principles of drawing and design with brilliant color and dazzling light, Dennis Perrin creates beautiful and memorable images that both complement and transcend the high velocity, high-tech whirl of the modern age.
