Pia De Girolamo

I am an artist living just outside Philadelphia. Born and raised in New York City, I trained and practiced as a physician before changing course; originally a lifetime avocation, art became my full time practice. 

I work mainly in acrylic on canvas but also make monoprints. My abstract landscape paintings are based on close observation and drawings of nature and are executed back in the studio. I exhibit and sell my work primarily in the Philadelphia area and my paintings can be found in personal and corporate collections including PNC Tower Headquarters in Pittsburgh and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. 

I am a member of 3rd Street Gallery, Cerulean Gallery and David Rocco Gallery in Philadelphia.

Single Sheet Book. Ghost Monoprint on mulberry paper. 

Icelandic horses are integral to the Icelandic culture and landscape. I liked this ghost print (a fortuitous 2nd printing that can sometimes be obtained if there is still enough ink on the plate from the first printing) better than the original because the subdued colors give it a mysterious quality. The horses seem to be moving in the mist. They are also evocative of their ancestors, who may still be grazing the landscape in spirit.
