Statement before the statement: I "quite not much agree" with the need to write the statement in a first place. It is easier to paint than answer on questions as: why do I paint :0) or why do I paint that or how long does it take or where do I get my ideas or what was I thinking about or --- this is my favorite!--- How did you become Olga Perry? ----well, Statement: We have one life to live and worse that could happened -- we die. Too bad! Before it happened we still have some time to do something. And it is better be fun! In my point of view, there is no meaning of life to get some prize or achieve some goal. There is no "thing" or person that can make us happy, except ourselves. I see the meaning as a process of being here. To this point, my art is not the goal, it is the product of my pleasure of "the being".
Biography: I have been through dramatic career changes including classic piano, engeneering, medical school, medical doctor, OB/GYN, Ph.D., major of Russian Army, business owner. I moved to USA in 1995 with two bags, my eleven years old daughter and about 50 English words on my vocabulary. My life in the States has changed according to the speed at which I have learned English, including a baby-sitter, department store cashier, hostess, waitress, customer service, some computer programming and business college, a corporate manager and finally the vice president of a renewable energy corporation. At 46 I took my first drawing class, year later I was introduced to clay. Looks like it will be no more changes on my "profession" list. I found everything I need. Harry Weisburd, Berkeley, CA, figurative sculptor and former professor of art at the University of Connecticut and Westfield State College at Westfield, Massachusetts: ” I would describe Olga Perry's sculpture style as Romantic and Beautiful. Unfortunately in today's art world the words Romantic and especially the word Beautiful are considered not pc-- politically correct. I think her work is amazing with so little formal training, perhaps an year. Olga’s portrait heads have a distinct Russian “ look" to them with an Elegance of the tilt of the head and movement of a hand, striking design and linear movement of hair, and appealing Sexiness of her female nudes.” "Awards: 2003- first prize on International Contemporary Juried Art competition "Metamorphosis".
