Rosslynd Piggott, Dividing Infinity: Paintings 2004 to 2006


The exhibition showcases paintings created in the last two years by one of Australian's most eminent image makers, Rosslynd Piggott.

Rosslynd Piggott works slowly and subtly so that the tonal differences in her paintings can be barely visible. Long influenced by Japanese culture (she has a show lined up in Tokyo immediately after this one ends), her pictures are delicate and airy, offering the merest wisp of the ungraspable. She takes observations of nature as her starting point (a blossom for instance), but her interpretations aren't literal so much as open-ended and metaphorical. Lightness and darkness, as well as our human relation to the endlessness of space, are the sort of themes visited here.
