I just absolutely love your art. The textures drive me insane (in a GOOD way)... It's just amazing and I would plaster my house with your art if I could afford to!

Thanks so much! I’m glad to hear that you enjoy my work so much, but don’t feel too intimidated to message me off anon and inquire about pricing! (This goes for everyone else too!) I’m happy to take on commissions and would be happy to discuss sizes and prices of paintings :)

Now that I’m back in Minneapolis from visiting Italy and my summer internship in Germany, I finally have the chance to edit and upload some documentation of new paintings I finished before I left in June. I made these new paintings as perks for those who donated specific amounts for my Indiegogo campaign.

If any of you guys are ever interested in commissioning a painting from me, just email or message me to discuss specifics! ♡☆♡☆♡

"Alicudi Project (2001)" (Work in progress) by Paola Pivi

"Alicudi is a small island off the north coast of Sicily and was for a while the home of the Italian artist Paola Pivi. She has taken a photograph of Alicudi and has made it her goal to print out the picture on a 1:1 scale, on massive rolls of PVS measuring 5 x 50 m long. Each time the Alicudi Project is exhibited, another roll - carrying the next section of the image - is to be added. To assemble a full-scale photograph of the island, Pivi would need 3,742 rolls. The finished work would measure 500 x 1818.75 m - just under a square kilometer.
The impossibility of achieving this ambition is inherent in the concept right from the start. The attempt to appropriate one’s home and translate it into the exhibition space remains a utopian idea.”
