Biography

Hilary Pecis is mostly inspired by her everyday surroundings. She finds beauty in ordinary objects and catches simple and intimate reflections of the space around her. Within her private home or the urban environment, Pecis detects beautiful angles and gives the viewer the chance to see common, overlooked pieces out of a new magnificent perspective. Bookshelves, table decorations, street signs, plants, rooms, urban spaces or furniture obtain a previously withhold spiritual and comforting aura. The viewer can feel that Pecis everyday life, which naturally changed with the birth of her son a few years ago, has plenty magical stories for her to offer. Pecis pictures transform the surrounding landscapes into peaceful, secure and calming still lifes the viewers eyes can hold on to.

Hilary Pecis ist hauptsächlich von ihrer alltäglichen Umgebung inspiriert. Sie findet Schönheit in gewöhnlichen Objekten und fängt einfache und intime Reflexionen des Raumes um sie herum ein. In ihrem privaten Zuhause oder in der städtischen Umgebung entdeckt Pecis schöne Winkel und gibt dem Betrachter die Chance, gemeinsame, übersehene Stücke aus einer neuen großartigen Perspektive zu sehen. Bücherregale, Tischdekorationen, Straßenschilder, Pflanzen, Räume, Stadträume oder Möbel erhalten eine zuvor zurückgehaltene spirituelle und beruhigende Aura. Der Betrachter spürt, dass Pecis Alltagsleben, das sich mit der Geburt ihres Sohnes vor einigen Jahren natürlich verändert hat, viele magische Geschichten für sie zu bieten hat. Pecis Bilder verwandeln die umliegenden Landschaften in friedliche, sichere und beruhigende Stillleben, an denen der Betrachter festhalten kann.
