Harrison Pearce designs mechanical systems. A strand of his interests lie in two parallel histories: the evolution of the living body and the shifting metaphors that interpret that evolution. Pearce, who transitioned from painting to sculpture via analytic philosophy, stages the history of this inquiry as a curious probing — jarring, rhythmic and at times dramatically oppressive.
His practice combines disciplines and materials ranging from sculpture, drawing and printmaking to engineering and sound design. Since graduating from the MA course at City and Guilds of London Art School in 2016 he has gone on to exhibit in museums and galleries alongside international artists and has developed major works for both private and public collections.
