About Jack PiersonView Profile »
Jack Pierson (American, b. 1960) is a photographer, sculptor, painter and draftsman who received his BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston in 1984. Pierson is best known for his photography, Abstract sculptures and collages but has worked with a wide range of mediums. He is openly gay, and many of his photographs are images of men shot in a casual, erotic fashion. Pierson is considered to be part of the Boston School, which is a term used to refer to a group of photographers who worked in Boston in the early 1980s. Mark Morrisroe (American, 1959–1989), David Armstrong (American, b.1954), Nan Goldin (American, b.1953), and Philip-Lorca diCorcia (American, b.1951) were all part of the Boston School and created a style of photography that centered on them photographing their mutual friends in intimate or casual settings. Sometimes infused with a sly sense of humor, Pierson’s work is inherently autobiographical; his fixation with fame affirms the tendency to yearn for an ideal, allowing for the viewer’s identification with his imagery. Fueled by the poignancy of emotional experience and by the sensations of memory, obsession and absence, Pierson’s subject is ultimately, as he states, “hope.”Interested in consigning works by Jack Pierson?
