Unable to stand on my feet."EDMUND PERINI (1922 - 1991) retired in 1968 as a senior civil servant dealing in the gray area of espionage on behalf of the British Intelligence Service. This period of his life is clouded in mystery linked to the romantic world of mayhem and madness of war.After Retirement, he practiced as a painter and arts tutor studying with Percy Bradshaw of the Press Arts School London and at the Heatherly School of Art London.He regularly exhibited at International art exhibitions winning a gold medal prize award in 1974 for flower painting in the Britain Water Color Exhibition at the City Guildhall and Arts Club, Winner of the Portrait Competition in 1977 and Oil Trophy South Eastern and International Federation of Art Society 1981 Annual Exhibition.His works are collected by Libraries and Museums throughout Engalnd and many are in select private collections.Like so many artists whose work in their lifetime was virtually unknown, the genius of Edmund Perini is characterized by a visionary element of bold color exploding in liquid form presenting a composition of fragmentation coupled with a corresponding search for form. He painted in a furious brush stroke that is shattering, calming but in the end triumphant in the artists observation of time and place.
