Of Sea & Stone: Paintings 1974 – 2014 by Peter Pearson – Peter Murray & James Howley (Essays). Published by Gandon Editions, Kinsale (2014), Hardback, 144 pages.

This foreword to the book sums up my cousin’s work better than I can and so I am reproducing it here in full:

Although characterised by a lightness of touch and sense of innocent pleasure in everyday city scenes, Pearson’s art reveals also a palpable suspicion of the institutions of Irish society.

His larger works, complex and allegorical, hint at a complicated relationship with society. However, in his small, quickly executed sketches of streets and docks, he can be a fine impressionist painter. Although largely self-taught, there is a sophistication in his use of colour and the deft application of paint in quick dabs and dashes, accurately capturing the scudding clouds and the quickly changing light on the river Liffey.

As a result of studying art history rather than going to art college, Pearson’s magpie aesthetic extends seamlessly from collecting architectural fragments to liberally incorporating motifs and styles he admires in the work of other artists…’ ‘Some of Pearson’s paintings are quasi-abstract, some Impressionist, some Surreal. All are individual and are united by the artist’s refined tonal sense and delicate use of colour, and an aesthetic unique in contemporary Irish Art.’ Peter Murray, Director of Crawford Art Gallery, Cork

Pilson, Cupar

Born in Belfast, Cupar Pilson worked for many years as a graphic artist in printing and newspaper advertising. His first love has always been to paint landscape in acrylics, watercolour and mixed media. In recent years however figures have tended to dominate, so much so that the landscape has become secondary to foreground subject matter. Humour and a certain naivety of style is a hallmark of his work. His compositions mainly depict scenes from around North Down where he lives. He also loves to paint life in ‘pre-troubles’ Belfast – circa 1960s.
