Erik Pearson

Primary Medium: Painting
Other Mediums: Sculpture

Erik is a storyteller. His expressionistic paintings give a glimpse into a character at a given moment in time. The color, composition, and contrast reflects his love of a theatrical setting, and play off some common subject matters of music, circus performers, and nautical themes.

A similar approach can be found in all of Erik’s work: painting, scraping, staining, and building layers upon layers of material and ideas until the work comes to life in bright colors and heavy contrast. The compositions tend to be dense, and use of overlapping images to express a sense of interconnection and create a flow, guiding the viewer’s eyes throughout the work, as they explore and interpret the characters and objects.

Erik’s paintings can be found in private collections nationally and internationally.
