Focused on exploring the connectivity within humanity and its claims of control over social systems, habitat, nature, and future, Peirce's artwork pendulates between absolutes–such as optimistic or pessimistic, satiric or esoteric, pragmatic or spiritual, and bold or poetic. Grotesquely exaggerated human forms, arterial-botanic city organisms, and flowering interconnected urban clusters currently inhabit his psyche and spew into his work. On a more intimate level, his influences instinctively stem from past and current environs, travel, exploration, skateboarding, surfing, day-dreaming, philosophy, and interacting with all forms of the human animal with a focused lens on the social outcast.

Specialising in fine representational ink drawing, I have a range of influences, but my inspiration initially stems from the medium itself. Much of my work explores the relationship between the fluidity and solidity of ink. Perhaps counterintuitively, in order to achieve a realistic representation of the flowing medium, my technique is a highly controlled one painstakingly built up from thousands of dots. Producing each piece is a process I enjoy loosing myself in.
Realism and elements of the fanciful are often juxtaposed, co-existing and colliding in my work. With influences including organic natural forms, the female form, fashion, sub and popular culture and the decadent playing a part in my work.
