“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
“It is not often that a contemporary artist stops you in your tracks, roots you to the spot and draws you into their work with just the briefest of viewings. In a turbulent world, David Pearce’s work comes as a breath of fresh air in its directness and honesty.”
David Pearce is a self-taught artist. His work has been exhibited internationally since 1998. He has regularly had work selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. In 2018 David and a painting selected for the John Moores Painting Prize.
