For his new body of work and first solo exhibition at Ever Gold Gallery, Tahiti Pehrson will be presenting layered monochromatic three-dimensional paper pieces that play off of shadows and light, creating dramatic scenes. Pehrson shows his edge as seasoned veteran in an increasingly popular medium by producing works of staggering detail. A complex series of geometrical patterns, referencing Guilloche and epitrochoids; a system used to produce geometric symbols seen on currency throughout the world similar to a super Spirograph. These works navigate the complexities and hidden meaning that are ever present in international power as well as the systems of the natural world, reminding the viewer that there is always more than what meets the eye.

Pehrson is drawn to the ephemeral qualities of working with paper. A strong gust of wind or the simple slip of the artists’ hand could ruin the delicate pieces. Similar to the process of sand mandalas, Pehrson mimics this tradition’s transient nature by burning select works upon completion, perhaps as an offering to the transitory nature of life, to the stars or to the young Beasts.

Tahiti Pehrson has produced a number of artworks for musicians, including Joanna Newsom and Devendra Banhart as well as a number of skateboard graphics for companies such as Adrenalin, Toy Machine, Telegraph & Familia South Africa and is currently working on graphics for San Francisco’s own Blood Wizard Skateboards. Pehrson continues to work in the Sierra Nevada Foothills and show internationally as well as work on designs for a new candy cane. To see examples of Tahiti Pehrson’s work visit
