Ben Pearce

Ben Pearce is a New Zealand sculptor and contemporary artist working with wood, found objects and bronze. Pearce’s art explores memory and reconciles it with a recent and common ‘ancestor’ to us all: childhood.

The website follows and examines Pearce’s journey as a contemporary sculpturist. It makes visible the quirks and tragedies of his mind — and it’s recording machinations. I wanted to manifest Pearce ‘the artist’, as Pearce ‘the website’.

The website won Grafik a Gold Best award as well as an Awwwards site of the day.
