Heir to Warhol and the 1960’s counter-culture, Todd Pierce advocates that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” His Pictogram Art attempts to capture today’s popular culture through universal iconography.

A pictogram is a pictorial symbol that conveys a word, a phrase or an idea. Since the dawn of humanity, pictographs have been used as the earliest known form of writing. They usually transcend culture and can help speakers of different languages communicate more effectively. Better known as “icons” in contemporary communication, pictograms have been popularized through the use of computer and phone technology.

Todd Pierce has embraced these modern symbols and has turned them into universal pop art. He purposely takes these emblems out of their original intended context and gives them new meaning. Pierce resolutely wants his art to be a bridge between languages, cultures, social status, and age.

July Featured Artist Michael Carson

Bonner David Galleries
July 2020 Featured Artist – Michael Carson
“Contemplative Moments”

Image of oil painting "Blue Flowers" by artist Michael Carson, on display at Bonner David Galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona and New York

Michael Carson has been called the “post-millennial Toulouse-Lautrec.” Like the turn of the century French master, Carson is a self-described people watcher. He paints figures with a soft, sophisticated touch. His works summon a pensive, ethereal feeling in the viewer. His subjects seem absorbed in a world of contemplation and inward thinking.

Working loosely and spontaneously, Michael Carson makes every brushstroke count. His use of color and light contributes to the overall meditative mood of his paintings, although he allows the viewer to interpret meaning using their own experience. These captured moments and this focus on atmosphere make Carson’s art both personal and universal and appeals to an increasing number of collectors in the United States and abroad.
