Originally from Utah, Nancy Pearce arrived in Los Angeles after living in Seattle, upstate New York, and Berlin, and then spent eight years in Joshua Tree honing her desert survival skills before happily re-landing back in LA. She continually puts her seemingly bullshit-at-the-time interdisciplinary degree from college to practice with work in film and archives and art. She resists calling herself an artist because she sees herself as more of a connector and collaborator. Her own pieces are defined by form and a sense of humor. She celebrates everyday life and creates trophies of the mundane - a plastic water bottle, bagel or tube of toothpaste elevated into sculptural form when cast in bronze. She also works with Commune Design on a series of Commune + Nancy Pearce items only available at Commune, as well as with Heath Ceramics casting their iconic designs in bronze to create truly heirloom pieces that survive not only generations, but geological time.
