Rosslynd Piggott: Gardenia, gardenia and vapour window

17 Aug 2019
Sutton Gallery 2 Aug - 30 Aug 2019

Have you ever encountered a moment where you are eager for fresh air, a refreshing sight for your exhausted vision so that you can simply isolate yourself from complex reality? A solo exhibition by Rosslynd Piggott, Gardenia, gardenia and vapour window carefully observes the nature of flowers, reinterprets their presence through their colours as vaporized spaces and encapsulates their visual sublimity on a piece of canvas. Thus the paintings are not only hung up on a wall to be viewed—in order to understand Pigott's paintings to the full extent, I encourage you to engage your senses and intuitively feel the artworks rather than trying to understand them in a literary sense.

As soon as you enter into the gallery space, every dimension of the wall is impeccably coated in white, which brightly opens up the space and the atmosphere and delivers a crisp sense of pure freshness to our eyes. The didactic panel indicates two gallery spaces—a 'small gallery' and a 'large gallery'.
