Hilary Pecis’s vibrant still lifes and landscape paintings feature tranquil domestic settings, textural floral arrangements, and references to the art historical canon. Her exquisitely detailed paintings exude a sense of casual comfort: With a soft, naturalistic palette, Pecis fills her tableaux with crowded tables, house plants, and hefty art books. The California-based artist has exhibited in New York, London, Tokyo, Beijing, Los Angeles, and beyond. She is also the co-founder of the Binder of Women, a collective of female artists based in the Los Angeles area. “I find that there is a lot of freedom within the parameters of the still life,” Pecis told Artsy. “It is a place to start, but there are infinite possibilities.”
