About

Mark Pearson's large ornamental DIY tapestries of sheets of cheap wrapping paper taped together join designs and words from the Punk and New Wave record covers of the 70's and 80's when techniques such as stencilling, spray paint, photocopying and crude collage were readily accessible means of production and communication. Pearson's work seeks to retain the exciting potential of these forms of expressive energy and vitality while recognizing „the temporal shift in culture that cause their redundancy, as they become events destined to burn out or appropriated as logos for nihilism and discontent“ (Mark Pearson). Divorced from the historical context of aggressive provocation against the dominating trends in culture and society, the alien (non) words and symbolism in Pearson's raw and glowing compositions heralds the cheap mystic of various subcultures.
