Editor’s Note:  this exhibition is well out of our usual coverage ambit but we have a strong connection to the artist and his work. 

The information age has brought the noise of the infinite to us in ways that seem deceptively manageable, but often add to the confusion of our daily lives. Memory has both evolved and devolved simultaneously. Our ability to receive and assimilate a myriad of information on a constant basis has been enhanced through the Internet, smart phones, and other Wi-fi connected devices.

Steven Pearson attempts to convey this multilayered process in a two-dimensional format, seeking to employ complex compositions that utilize color to both organize and confound space. Within Self-Reflection, Pearson utilizes tracings from twenty years of his previous paintings to create a multi-faceted history. His reconfigured imagery suggests the manner in which er store memories, and how we assimilate and make sense of information, Color is central to formalizing the haphazard collection which makes up his visual diary.

Steven Pearson is an Associate Professor in the Art and Art History Department, as well as the director of the Esther Prangley Rice Gallery at McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland.
