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.
