He has been featured in more than fifty national and international publications, including The New York Times Magazine, ARTnews, and American Art Collector. He has been a finalist in The Artist’s Magazine’s annual "Best Art" competition an unprecedented nine straight years. and was a subject on NBC Dateline television program. He is represented by galleries in Houston, London, Los Angeles, New York and Zurich.
Perrault’s paintings are instantly recognizable, each with its architectural space opening to the natural landscape and its iconic red bench or red architectural element. Every picture stands alone and draws the viewer in with its beauty and powerful serenity. But the real power of Perrault’s artistry is evident in the whole body of his work. From canvas to canvas, the color and direction of the light change, the interior architectural shapes are altered, the landscape is challenging or benign. Every image carries its own meaning and mood, and it is clear that Perrault’s meditative journey is rich and authentic and alive.
