"San Francisco artist, Hilary Pecis, draws methodical patterns comprised of visual codes established by observing sources such as folk art and technology. She then layers the drawings with images and shards of glossy magazine pages, reassembled so that they are no longer identifiable as the images they once were. Often inspired by photographs, Pecis’ works are depictions of the aftermath of an imagined apocolypse. The post-apocolyptic abandoned environment is represented by the drawn imagery and the magazine shards represent the beginning of new growth. Hilary’s work provides a critique of capitalism’s driving force behind the rate of technological developments in this interesting contrast between natural hand drawn forms and deconstructed glossy advertisements."
