Pie Herring is a London-based artist who graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2018 with a First-Class honours degree in painting. Herring’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, Herring’s work has been featured in Channel 4's documentary Flawless, whilst also in a group exhibition at the Oxo Gallery London, which saw artists collaborating with people living with rare diseases in the UK.

Predominantly working in oils, Herring’s paintings have a lively and playful disposition. Her practice explores social patterns and behaviours operating within contemporary society, which are indicative of and perpetuated by social, political and economic bias. She is interested in how women and their bodies are used as tools to bolster mass consumption and materialism, and looks to identify this propaganda within her work.
