Anastasia Pelias

“Color, and its emotional power, is a critical component in all of my work. I believe in the power of painting and its ability to evoke a visceral response from the viewer and to change how people see the world. I want to create work that is full of emotion and visual pleasure,” says Anastasia Pelias. Her diverse craft includes oil paintings on canvas, works on paper, sculpture, video, and site-specific and site-responsive installations. Informed by her native New Orleans and ancestral roots in Skopelos, Greece, Pelias embraces subjects that involve love, death, destiny, and the female experience.
