Pearl Van Geest

Artist Statement


My work plays with the tension between excess and restraint calling into question notions of contingency.

Increasingly my practice is predicated on responding to a particular place, situation or research and therefore I have been working in sets of overlapping series. While essentially discrete, in each body of work I am interested in linking "corporeal logics with conceptual thought.”[1]
