Wassailing from one of Dave Pearson’s Calendar Customs notebook

The Dave Pearson Studio have been working with David Chatton Barker from Analogue Farm to produce a new fully-illustrated 200 page book on Dave Pearson’s 1970s and ’80s work on English Calendar Customs. The book, ‘The Ritual Year’, will be published in late February 2023 and will be available from our on-line gallery and shop.

There is also an associated short animated film by Chinese filmmaker Kain Leo, and a downloadable soundtrack from The Roots Band, as part of The Ritual Year project.

The redesigned website for Dave Pearson inevitable focuses, for the main, on the artist’s major series of works. Many of these are ambitious large scale projects and these paintings are rarely domestic in size.

However Dave Pearson was nothing if not prolific, and we also hold many of his beautiful small-scale artworks. These were sometimes created as part of the major series of works – sketches, test pieces, or finished pieces in their own right. Others are simply stand-alone drawings, oil paintings or watercolours.

We are able to sell these directly from the Dave Pearson Studio. Either book a visit to see us, or (especially in this time of Covid) go to our sister site at dspearsonshop.co.uk. You’ll see a great selection of items here that can be bought on-line and we will mail these out to you in a matter of days.

The images on this page are among those that we’ve sold in this way over the past few weeks.

Apologies for being unavailable for the past few months. This was due to our service providers firewall blocking malware on the old website.

However, you’ll see that the D S Pearson site has now been completely redesigned.

Please let us know what you think about the new webpages!
