About me

Contemporary artist specialising in sculpture and printmaking, seeking opportunities to work, exhibit and collaborate in the creative industries. I am an MA Fine Art graduate from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London (2017-19), during which I undertook an additional Global Art Practice unit with Tokyo University of the Arts, graduating with a Merit overall. I am also a first-class BA (Hons) Art & Design graduate from the University of Leeds (2013-17). During this course, I completed a Year in Industry in London (2015-16), giving me the chance to work in a diverse range of creative roles, including design, arts management, marketing, sales, fashion and curation. I believe I have an astute eye for presentation and detail, and am competent using the latest versions of Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I strive to maintain a high level of organisation and consistently do my best to produce work to a high standard, aiming to be both proactive and cooperative within a team, and efficient as an independent worker. In addition to art and design, I have active interests in photography, literature, cookery and music.

      Work history

      Currently

      Dec 1994
      • London, United Kingdom
      • Full Time
      • Contemporary artist working between sculpture and printmaking. MA Fine Art graduate from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London (Merit; 2017-19). BA (Hons) Art & Design graduate from the University of Leeds (First; 2013-17). By staging conditions in which the interplay between gravity, balance, weight, physicality, hapticity, phenomenology and colour is infinitely fluctuating and dynamic, my work relishes the material unpredictability of process-led sculpture and its anthropomorphic relationship to the viewer. My practice is characterised by an underlying proclivity to transform soft or malleable substrates into encrusted, fixed or finite masses. Typically, this involves combining no more than two materials that symbiotically perform each other in continuum. Polarities between security and precariousness, fixity and changeability, tension and slack, contemplation and spontaneity, and action and aftermath comprise conceptual interests which have emanated from my recent theatrical ‘processions’ of self-supporting sculptures. The broad, non-indexical language of contrastingly fluid and frozen forms that I have developed is also driven by my fascination with how each viewer’s corporeal, perceptual, tactile and synaesthetic capacities inform their experience of my work, simultaneously activating my sculptures’ materiality as a subjective event of encountering, entering and becoming. christopherpearson.co.uk
