Pierson is an artist who has managed to fuse the legacies of the American art traditions of Conceptual and Pop Art, while evolving an expansive and now celebrated oeuvre.

For his recent show at the CAC M┬Ělaga the artist presented two bodies of work, both presented here in their own separate editions and boxed in a sturdy slipcase. The first contains a series of his renowned word sculptures - abstract wall sculptures, created using found, salvaged letters and signs; while the second presents a delightful series of conceptual photographs taken in 2009 carrying the title 'Jerusalem'. The two catalogues are clearly presented, with one colour image per page and accompanied by an essay along with an interview with Pierson.
