Monica Pipia 

          Monica Pipia’s work combines technical mastery with a rare ability to penetrate to the core of the subject matter. Exquisite restraint in the selection of color, line and surface texture which evokes a sense of timelessness. Her medium of choice is acrylic on canvas or paper with additional found materials like sand to create texture. Her technique is representative of her natural self-taught practice. This art stops you in your tracks as you are drawn into Pipia’s unique interpretation of once familiar objects. In their bare-bones abstraction, these paintings offer a glimpse of the infinite. Her artwork is in the permanent collection of the Kentucky Folk Art Center in Morehead, Kentucky, the University of Kentucky Medical Center, Eagle Brewing, Ruggles Sign Company and in the new Omni Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky.

         Pipia’s recent solo show, American Horse and Hound, at John Hockensmith’s Fine Art Editions Gallery in Georgetown received a positive response from the public. She has exhibited her work in numerous galleries across the country and is a recipient of the Andy Warhol Fellowship Award, the Kentucky Foundation for Women Grant and a VIP award for her residency in Alaska with the National Park Service. Her goal is to simply keep creating art and bringing it into the public eye.

“I try to recycle as much as possible and will paint over or the term is pentimento, which is  a visible trace of earlier painting beneath a layer or layers of paint on a canvas.”                                                                                                                                 - Monica Pipia
