Anya Pesce’s Fantastik Plastik series is primarily concerned with the elements of surface, material and colour. With an interest in painting and post-minimalist concepts arising from the critical discourse surrounding abstraction and non-objective work, Anya's work combines elements of hard-edged geometrical shapes counterbalanced by softer, gestural drapes. The historical reference to ‘Finish Fetish’ refers to art made in Los Angeles in the 1960s, when artists explored the interaction between the artist’s hand and manufacturing.

Pesce's three-dimensional hybrids are made from polymethyl methacrylate material which are heated and individually molded by hand.
