Mikaela Perry

Hello, and Welcome! I am a New York City and Vermont-based artist working primarily with oil paint. My paintings explore land stewardship and the importance of ancestral memory in our relationship to land, animals, and plants. Motivated by the loss of my family’s farm in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and my experience as the last generation to steward the land, I combine portraits of animals overlaid with flowers to represent the ties between past and present and highlight the importance of ancestral lineage in the food system. My work is a visual representation of humans’ ability to emotionally connect with beings that are not human and seeks to remind viewers of their own unique and cultural relationship with land.
