Ralph Pearce celebrates the transfigured post-modern. His figurative sculpture celebrates those who have been able to transcend to a new level of civilization. Their values are derived not from authoritarian institutions but from intuitive and deductive logic, deep emotion, rationalization , and a marked sensuality that prizes life and the love of it. His figurative work is a new celebration of the rise of the cultural creative. Incorporating the aesthetics of classical sculpture, but immersing the subject into post-modern themes that contemporary thinkers will embrace.
