Modern Tapestry

Modern Tapestry by Greyson Perry. In The Vanity of Small Differences artist Grayson Perry explores his fascination with taste and the visual story. It tells of our interior lives in a series of six tapestries. The creation process was also documented in three television programmes, All in the Best Possible Taste with Grayson Perry, for Channel 4.  The artist goes on a safari amongst the taste tribes of Britain, to gather inspiration for his artworks, literally weaving the characters he meets into a narrative partly inspired by Hogarth’s A Rake’s Progress.

Using tapestries as a medium is a departure from Perry, who is originally known from his contemporary pottery art. Perry’s sharp and often satirical social commentary style of class society in today’s Britain is always impressively insightful.
