Jack Pierson

Jack Pierson works with a variety of media, including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, installations and film. Through exploration of celebrity, melodrama and loneliness, Pierson articulates these through an emotional narrative manifesting lost love, sexual longing, faded glamour, fleeting moments, and melancholic and sentimental reflection. His favored subjects are excerpts from his daily life: fragments of urban landscapes, still lives of ordinary objects, homoerotic nudes and evocative words worked into collages or transformed into wall mounted sculptures. Deeply rooted in Americana, the artist seeks to portray the other side of the American Dream, what he calls “the tragedy inherent in the pursuit of glamour”.
