Alan Pearson, 1929–2019

Christchurch Art Gallery was saddened to hear of the recent death of Alan Pearson. Originally from Liverpool in England, Pearson moved to Aotearoa New Zealand as a young man in 1956 and studied at the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts. Totally committed to his practice, and never one to shy away from confrontation, he painted full-time from 1978 and exhibited extensively throughout New Zealand. He lived and worked mainly in Ōtautahi Christchurch before moving to Australia in the early 2000s.
