23 Dec 2020 - 31 Aug 2020
from 11am-6pm all bank holiday weekend - Please book your half an hour slot
This exhibition is a new series art created during lockdown that explores the themes of repetition, meditation and contemplation
The artwork consists of many thousands of shredded pieces. Some include photoluminescent pigments that have been an ongoing interest for the artist. Digital pixels in appearance but very much an analogue creative process.
The practice of destroying something to be able to create something runs through the series.
Visitors are invited to bring their own papers, photos and documents that can be shredded at the exhibition for the artist to use in future artworks. A symbolic act to let go of something that they no longer want in their life that takes on a new life.
A passion for making art was awakened whilst studying counselling and psychotherapy. Mr Mr Pearce has attended the Richmond School of Painting and also numerous courses run by the Slade School of Fine Art during their annual summer school, including their Foundation course.
Artistic influences include Lee Krasner and Briget Riley. Other influences include psychotherapy, in particular the archetypes of Jung and Assagioli's inclusion of spirituality into his theories of the human psyche. Optical illusions, psychedelia, electronic music and the repetition of minimal classical music also have an influence.
Exhibition is open (but gates are closed)
Due to COVID we are restricting the numbers of people this weekend for everyone’s safety. Therefore, the gates will be kept closed this weekend while the exhibition is on.
