Philomene Pirecki

GREY PAINTING: TEXT VERSION 35
2011
oil on canvas
23 4/5 x 19 4/5 inches

London artist Philomene Pirecki creates work by echoing her chosen material’s object-ness through an illusion in paintings’ narrative convention.  In Grey Painting, Text Version 35, one first sees a smooth black and white image with endless anecdotal interpretations. Upon second glance, the lines create a cross-brace that echoes the structure of the support on which the canvas is stretched. In the end, Pirecki delivers a visual indication of something typically unseen. Philomene Pirecki’s work has been exhibited at venues in the UK, Germany, Belgium, United States, Denmark, France, Sweden, and Japan.
