DESCRIPTION

Anthony Pearson (b.1969, Los Angeles, lives and works in Los Angeles) creates photography and sculpture (often presented together) that explores the subtle interplay of light, shadow, and surface.  His abstract works combine an emphasis on the process of working with materials with an equal concern for the development of formal elements such as color, reflection, and texture.  Pearson joins other artists of his generation who are similarly investigating the notion of the photograph as an object and the pictorial potential of sculptural work.  For his Front Room project, Pearson will present a selection of his “tablets,” wall-based cast-bronze sculptures that feature aggregations of cut-metal forms that alternate knowingly between pure aesthetic expression and the decorative.
