Into the Void

Photographer Robert Pearson was the sole New Zealander, and one of 18,000 entries, to make the International Photography Awards (IPA) final selections winning second place in the Fine Art: Abstract Pro section for ‘Entrophy & the great Void’. In his artist’s statement on the IPA site Pearson writes: “These pictures are mostly taken in museums, galleries and at monuments. I am intrigued by the weird juxtaposed narratives contained within these spaces. These pictures are a celebration and extension of that artificial dialogue. This series began in New York, November 2008 as Wall Street began to implode. These are ‘digital photo paintings’.” Pearson is a film designer and is currently in Detroit working on the American film Highland Park and has recently completed designing the Random House book The World’s Fastest Indian with New Zealand director Roger Donaldson. His website carries a portfolio of international images and photographic abstracts.
