Viewing Hilary Pecis: Piecemeal Rhythm, Timothy Taylor

The richly coloured, deliberately flattened paintings of Los Angeles artist Hilary Pecis are as alluring as they are intriguing. ‘There’s a rhythm within my paintings,’ she says. ‘Each work has a certain wonky quality, a fluidity that I try to keep throughout the process.’

The artist’s first solo exhibition in the UK presents interior scenes, cityscapes, still lifes and landscapes inspired by photographs, memories and the space around her. Thrust centre stage are a range of intimate objects, from overflowing fruit bowls and piles of books to wilting flowers and open wine bottles, that allude to the rhythms of daily life. Visual cues such as newspaper headlines hint at specific time and place.

What strikes, though, is her palette’s luminosity — each scene is suffused with a California sunlight that brings a distinctly Los Angeles feel to traditionally European genres of painting. Dive into her world — as weird and wonderful as it is.
