Pearson: Paintings & Drawings

Bruce Pearson

Jan 06 – Feb 10, 2001

Bruce Pearson

Threat of Extinction, 1999

Description


Bruce Pearson will exhibit new paintings and drawings, characterized by eye-popping color and energetic design and propelled by a vigorous conceptualism. The paintings, wall reliefs carved on Styrofoam slabs, are comprised of text and imagery, abstracted to the point of indecipherability and subliminal meaning. The text is mined from contemporary pop culture and Classical sources; the imagery relates to the natural world. In Pearson’s work, elaborate transformations and a dense layering of meaning synthesize form and content.
