Biography
David Pearce was born in 1963 and has lived in Cornwall since the age of three. He is a self-taught artist whose work has been exhibited internationally since 1998. He had great success at New York’s hippest Art Fair the “Outsider” represented by Marion Harris Fine Art, Park Avenue, New York and recently "Accidental Genius" Milwaukee Art Museum. 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. Any devotee of Kettle's Yard will feel an immediate connection to David's work, its simplicity and spontaneity, its balance and use of space, the subtlety of the mark making, all evoke the spirit of Nicholson, Hilton, Heron and Frost. His new work is moody and solid, dark and full of real character in the finest traditions of the St Ives School and yet at the same time it is work truly owned by the artist. This recent work also draws deep into the landscape tradition of Modern British Painting with a limited pallet both enhancing and deepening the mood. David Pearce's work is testament to his standing as an increasingly important figure in Contemporary Art.
