Mike Piggott | i've never been here before

15 Oct - 28 Nov 2021

Tayloe Piggott Gallery is pleased to present ‘i've never been here before’, an exhibition of oil paintings and iPad print drawings by local artist Mike Piggott on view from Friday, October 15th through Sunday, November 28th, 2021. With a rich understanding of art history, Piggott creates compelling and curiously biographical works that document the qualities of life in the American West that span old and new. The works nod to folk art and faux naïf, while toying with two-dimensional abstraction and color-field painting approaches. Mike Piggott’s images bring a haunting air even as they are pleasantly nostalgic—a celebration of nature and humanity rendered in paint.
