Hilary Pecis

Text by Johanna Fateman, Lily Stockman.

Hilary Pecis

“Hilary Pecis makes magic, buoyantly reviving the vivid dream you’d like to revisit. Her scenes become wonderland dioramas that expand, deepen and sprout detail.” –Juxtapoz

Hilary Pecis has won widespread acclaim for her singularly charming domestic still lifes and sun-drenched street scenes, paintings and drawings rendered in vibrant saturated colors and bold linework that seem to celebrate the quiet moments of life: coffee tables overflowing with books, the remains of a dinner party, terrains lush with Southern California succulents.
This monograph, the artist’s first, collects more than 50 works painted in the period between 2017 and 2021. Writer and musician Johanna Fateman contributes a new text on Pecis’ works as they exist in dialogue with the history of representational painting, while painter Lily Stockman provides a more personal view on the collected paintings as Pecis’ unexpected studio-mate during the time of the Covid pandemic. This lavishly designed and fully illustrated volume invites the reader into the enchanting world of an ascendant new talent in painting.
Hilary Pecis (born 1979) has recently been the subject of solo exhibitions at Rockefeller Center, New York (2021); Timothy Taylor Gallery, London (2021); Spurs Gallery, Beijing (2020); Rachel Uffner Gallery, New York (2020); and Crisp-Ellert Art Museum, Flagler College, St. Augustine, Florida (2019). Her work is in the permanent collections of institutions including the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Aďshti Foundation, Beirut; and Yuz Museum, Shanghai. Pecis lives and works in Los Angeles.


"Party Dog" (2019) is reproduced from 'Hilary Pecis.'

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

T Magazine

Adriane Quinlan

She seems interested in building a record of how her generation lives, with its many markers of identity and taste...and there’s a suggestion that what some call clutter goes a long way to making a cold world feel more hospitable.

Hot Book Alert: 'Hilary Pecis' is a New Release this week!

Featured spreads are from Hilary Pecis, the staff favorite new release published by Gregory R. Miller & Co.. The first major monograph on the artist, it launches with a signing at Rachel Uffner gallery—where the work is currently on view—this Friday, May 6, from 4:30–6PM. In her catalogue essay, Johanna Fateman writes: “‘Being clever was never my strong suit,’ [Pecis] reflects, when describing how she arrived at her current representational style and subject matter. She frames her practice—still lifes and landscapes, broadly defined—as a retreat from relevance (whatever that means) or as a reprieve from trying to attain it (and thus an art career) under near-impossible conditions: Pecis has an almost nine-year-old son. When he was three, she thought she wouldn’t be showing anymore. Motherhood’s haunting reputation as an enemy to both creativity and professional achievement, plus a child’s real material and energetic demands, as well as a day job (she was a registrar at a gallery), had her reconsidering her struggle, dwelling on the MFA-program axiom that almost no one makes it as an artist. Maybe not being an artist would be fine. ‘I thought, I’m just going to go through my photos and make some paintings.’ The simplicity of the idea and the enjoyment she found in those first smallish paintings, made at home, tricked her into making it as an artist.” continue to blog
