Bruce Pearson: New Paintings

Bruce Pearson

Apr 10 – May 08, 1999

Bruce Pearson

Elated Tensions etc., 1996

Description


Bruce Pearson will exhibit new paintings in his first one-person exhibition at the Feldman Gallery. The paintings, wall reliefs elaborately constructed from Styrofoam, are based on texts appropriated from popular culture, which are often transformed to the point of indecipherability and abstraction. The paintings provide a sensorial rich overload of color, pattern, and texture. An artist committed to visual pleasure and the seduction of painting, whose tone alternates between the playful and the serious, Pearson investigates the relationship of image, word, and meaning. The exhibition will also include gouache drawings, autonomous artworks that serve as templates for the three- dimensional paintings whose construction is based on the alternation of negative/positive space.
