Bio/Research

Martin Pearce is an Assistant Professor in Painting. He studied painting in the UK and graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in 1985. His studio practice in drawing and painting investigates relationships between mark-making on a 2-dimensional surface and images of structures and excavations on the earth's surface. As Gary Michael Dault has written about his recent work, "painting is also applying pigment and removing it again, digging, chipping, sanding, maybe tearing at it with your fingernails. Pearce operates as if he were a surrogate for erosion, for the wearing away of the landscape by force and time." He has taught at the University of Toronto and exhibited in Canada and the UK. His work is included in public and private collections.
