Tristan Pigott - Instrument in a Spiral

Wed-Sat: 11-6pm

Tristan Pigott ‘Instrument in a Spiral’ presents the metamorphosis of paint as analogous to the metamorphosis of perception. With pigment on canvas and board lured from the walls as if responding to the sound piece serenading them, this suite of new works by Pigott introduces a sonic force to the artist’s sustained interest in challenging stasis in painting.

Utilising The Myth of the Gaze of Orpheus as a spigot, Pigott taps into the cosmic dramaturgy of art history - one freed of concern for singular or decipherable meaning. Rather than activating a discernible narrative, molecules of paint transmute the transgressive gaze itself. At Pigott’s hand, the conflation of stimuli slips from the work and alights on the retina, vibrating with the composite frequencies of Nathan Pigott's site specific sound scape
