Statement : 

Ant Pearce’s practice focuses on the concept that 'man is condemned to exist imprisoned'. He explores the fragility of life, drawing on human psychology. Influenced by Freud’s theories and the writings of Dostoyevsky, Kafka, Camus and most recently Schopenhauer, his work alludes to the idea that the omnipresent external authority is what brings about man’s aberrant destructive behaviours.

Through a web of cross-references between colour, medium and form, the viewer is positioned before the work in discourse between order and chaos. Each work brings into visibility the sense of imprisonment and anxiety, which underlie human existence, and the instinctive desire to return to an inanimate state.

Behind the Black #2 #4
Behind The Black was created over the Summer of 2019 while living in Capitola Village, CA. Inspired by the artist’s friends, art director and curator Suzie Quill, fellow artist and contemporary Annie Terrazzo; and coach, CrossFit Games athlete Annie Sakamoto. The series deals with the process of repair, while exploring ideas related to consciousness and awareness. Outside influences were provided by the artist Kader Attia’s exhibition The Museum of Emotion which took place at the Hayward Gallery, London 2019, and topics discussed by author and neuroscientist Sam Harris in his writings and podcasts. Each piece is based on images from high end fashion magazines, created in watercolour, using a limited palette. The artist’s focus was to develop techniques in color harmony taught to him by his contemporary and friend Rebecca Boyd Allen during his stay in London during the Spring of 2019.
