Zino Pece studied photography at degree and postgraduate level, but painting has always been his real passion. Now devoting his time to making abstract art, Zino explores the fresh possibilities and refute the suggestion that painting is dead. He belives painting has continued to break new ground, expand our vision and convey meaning.
Living in Wales, he is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery that he has seen anywhere in the world. It inspires him, not in a way that it would to a landscape artist, but in its fluidity. The ever-changing colour, forms and light, shows Zino 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 his approach: the materials and methods represent a stable foundation from which to spontaneously respond. Guided by a demanding aesthetic and an open attitude, Zino Pece places forms and colours and begins a process of observations, decisions, actions and risks, in the hope of arriving at a point of realisation.
