Alan Pearson, Past time is future time
08 Apr to 27 Apr 2014
Past time is future time is an exhibition of recent paintings from Neo-Expressionist Alan Pearson, one of the defining figures of New Zealand art history. Spanning richly-detailed, monumental abstract works to Expressionist portraits, Past time is future time is representative of Pearson’s painting over the last decade; the zenith of a career that has spanned over 50 years and has brought well-deserved attention and acclaim.
Throughout his career and across his different subjects, Pearson has remained committed to the depiction of the metaphysical, using his own circumstance and psyche as the prime motivator in his work. His sincerity, understanding and openness create an intensity of emotion, a surfeit of energy and a density of ideas that few other artists are capable of expressing.
This pursuit of self-expression has fuelled Pearson and seen him achieve great acclaim. He is represented in many important public and private collections and is the subject of several publications. Ultimately, he is celebrated for his willingness to confront critical issues in his art—mortality, anxiety, love—with an unrivalled confidence, intellect and technical mastery.
