Steve Perrault wore many hats prior to his career as a painter, all of which continue to inform his work with unique personal experience. Having received graduate degrees in theology, psychology, and art history, Perrault worked for 10 years as a psychotherapist, often with the incarcerated; overlapping this time, Perrault spent years living in seminary communities. Both environments provoked his interest in psychological and spiritual self-discovery, the simple architecture and quiet spaces of the interiors he worked in informing his paintings. He was initially inspired to paint after noticing a beautiful light cast in the stairwell at his monastery (after which he immediately painted the surrounding walls blue and added a yellow stripe to enhance the shape of the light.) In his canvas paintings, Perrault creates similarly pristine, geometric interiors that play with light and encourage introspection.
