About the work
Anthony Pearson
American, b. 1969
Follow

Using materials like foil, spray paint, and ripped paper, Anthony Pearson crafts complex tableaus and, by photographing details of these constructions, abstract images. Highly atmospheric and at times humorous, Pearson’s photographs suggest a sense of realism while highlighting the artifice inherent in photographic imagery. In addition to photographs—which he sometimes mounts on Plexiglas and arranges in three-dimensional installations—Pearson also makes totemic, slab-like bronze sculptures that, displayed alongside the photographs, reinforce an uncertain relationship between object and image.
