‘Omaggio’ – meaning ‘to pay homage to’ in Italian – is the title of Pearson’s pictured bronze piece. The sculpture pays homage to the iconic British fashion designer and artist, Alexander McQueen. After Pearson was inspired by one of McQueen’s pencil sketches at the V&A, he worked into a clay mould and let the figure gradually begin to take on it’s own, unique form.
