PEACE PROCESS Gasworks Arts Park. Midsumma 2016.
''Renowned artist Andrew J Pearson will transform Gasworks Arts Park’s Foyer Gallery into a glittering temple of love, light, colour and rainbows with his stunning body of works Peace Process. Pearson’s Midsumma offering is more than just a visual arts exhibition. By literally piecing together multiple fragments of compact disc and small laminated monochromatic tiles which, when viewed from a slight distance, form photographic images, Pearson has produced a magnificent collection of 20 portraits.
Pearson has chosen subjects who have contributed to a furtherance of acceptance and empowerment of those who are misunderstood, threatened and marginalised based on gender, sexuality and race.
This is a one-of-a-kind visual art experience that offers the viewer an opportunity to contemplate loving kindness and the human rights of all, while stepping into an immersive, rainbow filled gallery space that bursts with splendid colour spectrums in constant motion.''
