Perry Rath

For nearly twenty years, Perry Rath has been pursuing artistic projects in a variety of international venues, collections, and publications. His practice has encompassed installations, objects/artifacts, paintings, printmaking, collaborations, and education. In his paintings he explores the range of patterns that humans rely upon to comprehend inner and outer environments. He delves into our fascination with landscape and the maps of that territory—the stories, the routes, the changes, the tragedies, and the reverence.

Born in Sarnia, Ontario in 1971, Perry settled near Smithers, BC in 2002, living rurally with his wife and two young sons in the mountains. He has always been involved in environmental and social justice causes and has established himself as a prominent artist, educator, and advocate in his region. Most recently, he was a coordinator of 4000 Reasons, an arts festival responding to the Northern Gateway Proposal; and he gave the workshops “Art and Advocacy” and “Youth Activism” at the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition’s Leadership Conference.
