A native Californian, Hilary Pecis lives and works in San Francisco, where she is a recent MFA graduate from California College of the Arts. Pecis’ work is a depiction of landscapes influenced by Internet, television and other media sources. Images and shards from glossy magazine pages are reassembled into a surrogate image within the new composition in combination with code imbedded drawings of rock formations. With an interest and focus on the interchangeability of images and the capability to perceive and ignore them, Pecis draws attention to how we are conditioned by the media’s overwhelming supply of information. She has been the recent recipient of San Francisco Weekly’s Mastermind Grant and San Francisco Arts Commission’s Murphy and Cadogan Fellowship.
