About Jack Pierson

Jack Pierson works in photography, sculpture, installation, painting, bookmaking and drawing, but is best known for the re-appropriation of commercial signage and large-scale vintage lettering, which he uses to create evocative word-sculptures and installations. Calligraphic, brightly colored, with references to both Minimalism and Pop, Pierson’s signage fragments reference the distinctly American road-side decay of old highways like Route 66. Despite his sly sense of irony and humor, Pierson’s work has always been imbued with a sense of longing, loss, melancholy, and disillusionment.

American, b. 1960, Plymouth, Massachusetts, based in New York, NY; Southern California
