Justin Pearces work begins at the very edge of our cultures borders. Similiar to an anthropologist he carefully traces the fringes of our great taboos and mythos.
Working in a variety of media and everyday materials he analyses both high and low forms of cultural expression to expose contemporary relics of cultures ever shifting tastes, anxieties, investments and great contradictions.
Intensely focussed with the curious aspects of sexuality and death - consumption and its effects. His most recent work has explored the link between sex and creativity, questioning the distinction between pornography and erotic art.
