Alan Avery Art Company will hold a reception for an exhibition featuring new work from Pascal Pierme. The reception will be from 7-10 p.m. on Friday, March 23, 2012. The exhibition continues through Saturday, May 5, 2012.
Pascal Pierme creates abstract wood sculpture. Known for his extraordinary range of geometric to organic forms, as well as his unique surface finishes, Pierme looks to express the strength and texture of his materials. His meticulous attention to detail balances with his ability to allow the medium to guide him to the final form. Including pedestal and wall pieces, Pierme’s work has a great presence due to its three-dimensionality, but also because of the artist’s keen use of color. Intermixed with the tones of the wood and slick metallic- looking surfaces, bright hues or calming neutrals cover sections of a sculpture to form abstract shapes. The clean lines and color lend to a modernist aesthetic.
Pierme was born in France and has lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico since 1997. His work has been exhibited throughout France, Switzerland, and the U.S. He has been awarded several commissions for large-scale installations, and was selected by the Chinese European Art Center (CEAC) for a 2-month Art in Residency in Xiamen, China in 2009. His work is in several public and private collections.
