Perryman has exhibited widely (in The Netherlands, U.K., Switzerland, Germany and the U.S.A).[3] His principal themes are portraits, landscapes, dance and in particular, music.[4][5] He uses the fluid transparency of watercolour to convey the illusion of movement and the transient nature of music and dance. His work is both figurative and abstract expressionist. Perryman’s earliest paintings on musical themes stem from the early sixties. One of his first subjects was conductor Bernard Haitink in 1965, conducting the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra. This led to many 'action portraits' of other great musicians, such as the violinist Lord Yehudi Menuhin.[6][7]

Vivaldi Cello Sonata

In 1990, Perryman was commissioned to paint a series of large watercolours of musical celebrities for Symphony Hall in Birmingham (UK). These include conductors Riccardo Chailly, Valery Gergiev,[8] Andris Nelsons,[9] Carlo-Maria Giulini, Bernard Haitink, Kurt Masur and Sir Simon Rattle, violinists Sarah Chang, Kyung-Wha Chung, Yehudi Menuhin and Itzhak Perlman, pianists Vladimir Ashkenazy and Alfred Brendel, singers Bryn Terfel,[10] José Carreras, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Jessye Norman, Luciano Pavarotti, cellists Yo-Yo Ma and Mstislav Rostropovich. This collection is arguably one of the largest collections in the world of musical subjects all by the same artist. Included in this collection are the large works The Mahler Experience and Elgar’s Dream.

Live Kinetic Painting as performance art[edit]

In 1973 Perryman began to work as a performing artist on glass plates placed on a series of overhead projectors, interpreting music visually in real time. In contrast to the trend of creating digitally generated video-projections, Perryman has developed a low-tech analogue alternative to produce huge projections of kinetic colours without pixels. As they listen to the music, the audience watches the evolution and dissolution of the semi-abstract visuals as Perryman paints them. The images from five or more projectors are mixed by hand with an analogue dimmer. Perryman calls this art-form kinetic painting, because the continuously changing sequence of colours and forms only exists in real time, then disappears forever. His paintbrushes also move to the rhythms of the music and make the liquid watercolour splash, pulsate, flow or spread continuously.[2]

Perryman memorises the musical score, then paints his kinetic visual sequences to a carefully rehearsed graphic choreography - although an element of improvisation is always present. The musicians or dancers often stand or perform in these projections, thus becoming totally integrated in the visuals and reacting to them. Perryman’s techniques also provide an experience in synaesthesia, (the sensory cross-over where, for example, one sees colours on hearing music or hears music in visuals).

Since 1973 Perryman has performed frequently in this way for television and with modern-dance groups in Switzerland, France, England, Germany, Finland, the Netherlands and the USA. Perryman made the film “Esquisses” for Télévision Suisse Romande in 1976. In 1979 he performed his abstract impressions of Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons' for French Television with Yehudi Menuhin. An example of his kinetic painting with dance was the modern ballet Invention (co-created with Philip Taylor) for the Netherlands Dance Theater, to open the 1989 Holland Dance Festival.[11]

In 1993, BBC Television made the documentary 'Concerto for Paintbrush and Orchestra', about Perryman's life and work with music.[12] This included a performance of Mussorgsky’s 'Pictures at an Exhibition', with Sir Simon Rattle conducting the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in Symphony Hall, where Perryman could be seen painting his own semi-abstract pictures, inspired by and synchronous to the music.[13]

Perryman has also performed with José Carreras and the Hallé Orchestra (1994), with percussionist Evelyn Glennie (1998), Holland Symfonia (Ravel) (2004), the Rotterdam Philharmonic (2004), the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra (Stravinsky: The Soldier’s Tale) (2004),[14] the Arnhem Philharmonic (2004) and with the Circle Percussion ensemble (frequently between 1978 and 2009). In 2005 he appeared with the Flemish Radio Orchestra in a performance of John Adams’ 'El Dorado' and toured Belgium with the Flemish Radio Choir in a programme entitled 'The Occupied City'. In 2006 he performed in Amsterdam in a Dutch version of Gertrude Stein’s chamber opera 'Dr. Faustus Lights the Lights', with music by Guus Janssen. At the 2007 Connecticut Greenwich Music Festival Perryman performed John Adams’ 'Hallelujah Junction' (with pianists Steven Beck and Andrew Armstrong). He has also performed several times in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Qatar.

Asian painting and music have always influenced Perryman’s work, first in his early watercolours, then in performances. In 2004 he chose Toru Takemitsu’s 'From me flows what you call Time' for a performance with the Rotterdam Philharmonic. In 2005, with the Dutch ASKO Ensemble, he performed 'Confluences: Concerto No. 4', by the Chinese-American composer Huang Ruo at the Amsterdam International Contemporary Music Week. 2007 saw three concerts with the International Sejong Soloists (Augusta Read Thomas and Takemitsu) in the Great Mountains Music Festival, South Korea.[15] He worked with Huang Ruo in 2008 to create 'Written on the Wind': a work for pipa, vocals and kinetic images. In 2009 he performed in the Amsterdam Muziekgebouw the first of a series with the Chinese trio Min/Wu/Xu. 2009 also saw performances in England with Charles Hazlewood in his 'Play the Field' festival, in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw with the Netherlands Philharmonic. 2010 saw Perryman’s debut with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra (Scriabin: 'Poem of Ecstasy') and in 2013 the first performance of Scriabin’s 'Prometheus: Poem of Fire' with live kinetic paintings and the National Orchestra of Belgium in Brussels. Perryman toured 'Piano Colours' with pianist Pierre Laurent-Aimard in 2012, and with violinist Daniel Hope and pianist Sebastian Knauer for the 2016 Menuhin Centenary in Konzerthaus Berlin and the Lübeck Schleswig-Holstein Festival. Then again with the Daniel Hope ensemble in l'Histoire du Soldat in Essen in 2018.

Perryman's final performance of lyrical kinetic painting live in concert was in Symphony Hall in 2019, with conductor Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra with 'The Sea' by the artist/composer M.K.Čiurlionis.
