Canfor Gallery – January 17th to March 31st, 2019
Gary Pearson grew up in Prince George and is now based in Kelowna, BC. Excerpts from a Retrospective brings together a selection of paintings produced between 2007 and 2018. Pearson’s psychologically charged work is often anchored in the description of a fleeting moment. Within his paintings, a seemingly ordinary activity, expression, or a scene, also suggests deeper undercurrents of meaning. In this way, Pearson connects the moments he depicts to the larger world and familiar conditions of everyday life and human experience.
