Expressionism and Personal Narrative
Responding to a very complicated childhood, and a previous
education in cellular biology, Chris Pearce's films explore personal narrative and
biomedical ethics. He has been making and teaching animation for 20
years and his work has been shown in festivals and galleries nationally and
internationally including New York, Seattle, Maine, Boulder, and Madrid.
His core practice as an artist is "looking closely" which he considers a
meditative practice that balances the mind.
Pearce's two films will explore evolving identity. The first film attempts to
make sense of the self in the wake of unmasking revelations about
parenting. The second explores the awareness of internal contradictions
between our doubt and our faith.
