We’re long-time fans of Hilary Pecis’ incredible paintings, which also incorporate ink and collage. Her themes are political: a critique of consumerism and fetishization of objects, as well as exploring the human relationship to landscape.

We are going to check out the new exhibition by one of our favorite artists and friends, Hilary Pecis, who is opening "Crash" at Park Life in San Francisco on Friday, April 18th. Pecis first caught our attention, and was featured in our print edition, for her amazing mixed-media collages that featured found imagery on the web. For "Crash" Hilary Pecis presents a series of collages composed of large scale photos of high profile NASCSAR crash scenes that were cut up and reassembled in order to present a reinterpretation of the events.

San Francisco-based Hilary Pecis, who we featured in our May 2011 issue, has a new exhibition, In Accordance, up at Halsey McKay Gallery in East Hampton through July 17. We have championed Pecis' work in the past because we feel it represents a traditional painters embrace of new media and technology, as she researches and culls hundreds of Internet images on a particular concept and creates a canvas based on those findings.

Our May 2011 issue is about to hit newsstands, and we are pleased to announce that Los Angeles-based fine artist, Eric Yahnker, is the cover of both our newsstand and subscriber covers.
