Critical Review

Differently from most of his works, Perry has not disclosed much on this embroidery, leaving the interpretation open to his collectors and fans, who are left to make what they want of this simple yet ambiguous embroidery. However, given the predominance of the theme in other works, it is likely that the piece is related to questions of identity, sexuality and love. In his life as well as in his works, Perry and his alter ego Claire have worked hard to push the boundaries of contemporary representation to explicitly address and defend social concerns and issues, one above all their endorsement of individual freedom of expression. By leaving to his viewers the possibility of reading the work however they prefer, Perry once again reaffirms his interest in personal creativity and freedom, and mostly allows the piece to work and speak differently to different audiences.
