Bronze Angel Sculpture "Ascent" by David Pearson
Award-winning sculptor David Pearson, Santa Fe, created this winged angel bronze titled ďAscent.Ē Size: 33" tall. Edition: 8/9 Each one of David Pearsonís sculptures exudes individuality and an authoritative presence that creates a relationship between the viewer and the work of art. No matter how contained, cool and elegant the figure, a David Pearson bronze projects a classical balance between vulnerability and dignity, between its own inner life and its connection with the human race. One has seen this perfect tension before, usually in museums that house collections from antiquity. David Pearsonís sculptures do not borrow stylistically from anyone or any period, yet their intuitive essence corresponds on a peer level with Nefertiti, Gothic cathedrals, the Russian icons and their artistic heirs: Vermeer, Archipenko, Braque and Giacometti. Unlike the swarming, labored Hellenic and Victorian statuary and the excesses of post-Modernism, all of Pearsonís works have a common thread of reserve, grace, and depth In Pearsonís hands, these qualities imbue each figure with a quiet radiance. They crackle with the humor and angst of a solid contemporary consciousness, functioning fully in the present moment while exhibiting the electric calm of the Winged Victory of Samothrace. Not for David Pearson is the tortured theatricality of art as political propaganda. ďFor me, art is a personal venture,Ē he explains. ďIím not out to change the world, but to change a few people who are free to like my work because they like it."
