Pie Herring is a London-based artist who graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2018 with a First-Class honours degree in painting. Pie’s work has been exhibited in a number of exhibitions. Notable highlights include the ‘Young London Painters’ group show in November 2018 and the Royal Scottish Academy’s New Contemporaries Exhibition 2019 where she was awarded the Carnegie scholarship. Most recently, Pie's work has been exhibited at the High Line Nine Gallery in New York as part of a group show entitled The Art of Resilience. 

Predominantly working in oils, Pie’s paintings depict tender portrayals of human and societal issues. Interested in the deconstruction and removal of paint, Pie strips background information to place emphasis on interrelationship and emotion. Each piece begins with a dynamic landscape of paint, large brushstrokes move widespread across the canvas, and puddles of turps dry to form unpredictable meandering marks. The figural composition is then considered in relation to this field of paint. Her practice continues to explore the synergy of gestural mark-making and more detailed brushwork.
