Rosslynd Piggott (Melbourne, 1978) is one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists and has received critical acclaim since the early 1980s. Her work has been represented in over 60 important solo exhibitions and numerous curated events both nationally and internationally.
With a foundation based in painting, her practice is wide and varied, encompassing drawing, photography, textiles, video, installation and sculpture.
Piggott's art is slow and deliberate, elegant and intelligent, linked by the ideas of dream states and Surrealism, synaesthesia and sensory perception, the beauty of gardens and the natural world and the poetics of space and place. Enlisting a sophisticated materiality, technique and sense of colour, Piggott recalls the fragile, ephemeral qualities observable in the natural world to signal the inner realm of emotion, memory and imagination.
