Pia Krajewski

untitled (soft built)

untitled (soft built) by Pia Krajewski sees a more architectural approach to mundane objects; the artist explores their superficial materiality as well as their deeper structures. The figures of Krajewski's artistry seem to be caught mid-evolution, in a moment of stillness between transformations - showing a glimpse of liveliness in them. This is a recurring path in Krajewski's art, and the viewer can thus witness the progression of the shapes and figures, the way they evoke one another, in Krajewski's oeuvre. The exhibition sees six artworks in a 3D space: UNTITLED (SCHIRME), 2020 Oil On Canvas 180 × 300 Cm UNTITLED (BONBON), 2020 Oil On Canvas 180 × 300 Cm UNTITLED (COMPANIONS), 2020 Oil On Canvas 230 × 450 Cm UNTITLED (BÜNDEL), 2020 Oil On Canvas 150 × 230 Cm UNTITLED (SÄULENFABRIK), 2020 Oil On Canvas 200 × 400 Cm UNTITLED (HAARKELCH), 2020 Oil On Canvas 100 × 150 Cm

Pia Krajewski’s art is tangible yet abstract. With its three-dimensionality, sculptural approach and textural references, it brings abstraction to life though its subjects, which are not always decipherable at first glance. Objects are at the core of Krajewski’s subject matter; however, the new vitality she brings to them is without bounds and highly palpable.

The life inherent in Krajewski’s art originates from the marriage of their organic qualities and their depth. Krajewski blurs the line between abstract and figurative, as her subjects may seem familiar, but their newfound context and acute levels of detail are initially foreign to the viewer.

The works in “untitled (soft built)” all give new life to the subjects they depict through their organic qualities, their acute detail, and through Krajewski’s signature style in which the aesthetic experience dominates the canvas. Drawing from a wide array of sources of inspiration, including architectural ornaments, fruit, armours, hair, and pillars, Krajewski’s art continuously pushes its viewers to question what they are faced with. The anthropomorphic and organic aspects of her work are what bring it to a specific space where abstract meets figurative.

The large scale of Pia Krajewski’s works captivates the viewer and transports them to a world where their sight can solely guide them to grasp and appreciate the subject matter. This unique format, where detail is highly visible, enhances the larger-than-life persona that her subjects occupy.

Born in 1990 in Cologne, Germany, Pia Krajewski is a painter of tangible abstraction. Her practice began when she attended the Dusseldorf Kunstakademie and has continued to grow into a nationally and internationally acclaimed artist.
