Rosslynd Piggott’s work has received wide acclaim, having been represented in over 20 important solo exhibitions, and numerous prestigious curated exhibitions and events, both nationally and internationally. With such a strong exhibition history, beginning in 1981, the artist has maintained a very prolific practice, focusing on 3-dimensional works, painting and drawing. Piggott’s style is slow and deliberate, often using natural forms and systems as a starting point for painterly mediations. Her practice is influenced by Japanese culture, her delicate and airy images have been said to offer the merest wisp of the ungraspable.

Individual exhibitions have included regular showings with Sutton Gallery, since 1994, solo exhibitions at Gallery 360, Tokyo, A.R.T. (Art Residence Tokyo), Tokyo, international shows in Antwerp, Belgium, Saitama, Japan and the installation, Trace, as part of the 1999 Liverpool Biennial, Liverpool, UK.
