For HENZEL STUDIO, Jack Pierson translated an automatic drawing into a rug design. The drawing strokes have been accentuated though lower pile heights and different proportions of silk and wool have been attributed to the two different colors for contrast. Jack Pierson works with a variety of media, including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, installations and film. Through exploration of celebrity, melodrama and loneliness, Pierson articulates these through an emotional narrative manifesting lost love, sexual longing, faded glamour, fleeting moments, and melancholic and sentimental reflection.
