Martin Pearce is a graduate of the Royal College of Art, London and is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Guelph, teaching Drawing and Painting. He has exhibited paintings and drawings nationally and internationally for almost thirty years. Pearce works in the interstices between drawing and painting, exploring the relationship between images as representation and images as a record or evidence of process.
Gary Michael Dault has written of Pearce’s work, “Painting is also applying pigment and removing it again, digging, chipping, sanding, maybe tearing at it with your fingernails. Pearce operates as if he were a surrogate for erosion, for the wearing away of the landscape by force and time.”
