David Pearce



“In these fast-paced virtual times, I paint as it feels innate, constant, tangible. I try to work with a primitive directness, using seemingly simple compositions and just enough complexity and confusion to hold the attention. The paintings are deliberately intimate in size, with no ego or grandeur. I celebrate the innocence of awkward lines and nervous tension.” David Pearce
