Gary Pearson, "Depths of the Ersatz"
Tuesday, January 20, 2015
Julie Oakes for Vie des Arts: "Pearson has the ability to capture great feelings, to illuminate the depths. There is respect afforded and allowances made so that tolerance blooms into recognition. Within the simple lines and disciplined palette, the romance of the medium is permitted while still retaining the objectivity necessary to pass on the sensation. Pearson's style shows his involvement in the process -- scumbles, smudges, handwriting -- as his energetic artistic movement stimulates our involvement."
