Mike Piggott | Biography

Back to Mike Piggott | Work
Piggott finds resonance and beauty in the familiar. His subjects, anchored in the stuff of the every day, are quietly captured in a moment of time. Each composition speaks to the art of silence and celebrates with a poetic quietude the beauty of the often overlooked. Whether painting sunbathers in the high heat of the summer, a still-life centering on a plated stick of butter, or a dream-like abstraction of birds on a wire receding into space, Mike Piggott’s work effuses a simplicity that begs for contemplation.
