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.
Predominantly working in oils, Pie’s practice explores ideas centred around the modern-day female and rebellion against traditional social narratives regarding womanhood. She is interested in antiquated notions of beauty, and how these representations of women are routinely depicted in mainstream media and consumer outlets. Pie seeks to subvert these ideals and identify ways in which the painting process itself can be considered a deconstruction of conventional norms.
