Zino Pece

Zino Pece

I studied photography at degree and postgraduate level, but painting has always been my real passion.

Now devoting my time to making abstract art, I explore fresh possibilities and refute the suggestion that painting is dead. Painting has continued to break new ground, expand our vision and convey meaning. Living in Wales, I am surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery that I have seen anywhere in the world. It inspires me, not in a way that it would a landscape artist, but in its fluidity. The ever-changing colour, forms and light, shows me a creator’s world; one that is established, yet open to new variations, not through randomness, but through choices, choices which offer a clear message.

This is my approach: the materials and methods represent a stable foundation from which to spontaneously respond. Guided by a demanding aesthetic and an open attitude, one places forms and colours and begins a process of observations, decisions, actions and risks, in the hope of arriving at a point of realisation.

Several of Zino Pece’s paintings are held in private collections. Here is a statement that art critic Kenworth Moffett recently wrote about the work: “In the last two years, the British painter, Zino Pece, has become one of the handful of painters who I think of as at the cutting edge of modern abstraction. Following in the footsteps of Jackson Pollock and Morris Louis, he orchestrates improvisational paint pouring on a large scale. Unlike his forebearers, he is able to exploit the unique properties of the new water based polymer paints to achieve the freedom and fluidity which he craves. Pece’s pictures freeze a spontaneous, yet perfect moment in the flow of paint.”
