Feature Pia Pack’s positivity is what you need right now
“Now is the moment to acquire a beautiful, colourful ray of Pia Pack positivity. Her work, including multiple commissions, is being bought up by people in all corners of the globe but she is prolific and early enough in her career that her pieces are still affordable but, mark my words, not for long.”
Pia’s influences are diverse and far-reaching, including: 1930s Picasso; the Pattern and Decoration movement in America in the 70s; the 80s Italian design movement; The Memphis Group; British Surrealism – in particular the work of Eileen Agar and Pia’s old MA tutor, Dexter Dalwood; as well as what she describes as “a whole coven of female painters working right now”.
During the pandemic and resulting lockdowns, she’s used the quiet time to zero in on her painting and, after spending a long time as an artist for hire, she’s now at the stage where she can focus on her own work and making self-instructed pieces. We can’t wait to see what that brings.
