Curated by Cura Art
Born in London, Pia now lives and works in Bristol and is represented by Gertrude. Pia studied painting at Wimbledon School of Art, Central St Martins and Bath School of Art and has been included in many group shows in London and in the U.S. In 2019, Alex Eagle invited Pia to take over their Soho studio with an exhibit entitled Table Talk. Whilst living in Los Angeles, Pia established the podcast ‘What Artists Listen To’ aimed at bringing artist’s studio practises to life and building a community amongst creatives in the city and further afield. This communal sentiment has been continued recently with an initiative in London entitled ‘The Binder of Women’, organised by Pack to unite a group of 11 women artists to create a portfolio of works together.
Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Pia Pack’s work examines ideas surrounding motherhood and domestic life through an exploration of social interactions around the kitchen table. These paintings for Art on a Postcard are entitled ‘Together 1, 2, 3 & 4’ - they are napkins layered on top of each other, all jostling about in a small crowded space. With a modernist approach to flatness, she combines familiar patterns and shapes with repetition and overlapping to create looseness and tension. Through these contradictions, she expresses a universal statement about the challenges and satisfactions of human relationships. Her work speaks to engagement with family life, social expectations and daily patterns.
