British artist Edd Pearman (b. 1976) graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2002 with an MA in Fine Art. He continues to live and work in London where he works as a visiting tutor to colleges across the United Kingdom. Pearman has had two solo exhibitions in London; ‘Social Studies’ at Catto Contemporary (2003) and ‘Nude & Bird Studies’ (2005), and has been included in a number of group exhibitions in the UK, New York, Berlin and Japan, including Bloomberg ‘New Contemporaries’ (2002) and the ‘New Artist Unit’ at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum (2006). Pearman’s curatorial projects include two successful group shows: “Sea Change’ (2005) at the Mark Jason Gallery, which was featured by the BBC and ‘Manderley’ (2009) at the John Jones Project Space, which received a ‘Pick of the Week’ in the Guardian.
Pearman’s work has been published in The Guardian, The Independent and The Times and features in collections around the world including the V & A, the Chapman Brothers family archive and the Bazil Alkazzi Foundation.
Pearman’s series, ‘Palace’, consists of four collages constructed from found imagery. These assembled objects represent once inhabited and treasured Kingdoms, patched together with magpie-like imperfection.
