Gwyn Hanssen Pigott

While I was looking at the Chinese pieces at the National Gallery of Victoria, I couldn’t help but think about Gwyn Hanssen Pigott.

She was very much influenced by the Kent Collection at the NGV. Hanssen Pigott studied Fine Arts at the Uni of Melbourne so she was a regular visitor to the NGV.

Hanssen Pigott succeeds in creating a connection with nature not unlike the potters of the Tang and Song dynasties in China. A stillness in nature.

They are very simple and refined as individual pieces and then Hanssen Pigott takes them one step further by creating careful arrangements of the pieces to create another whole work.

A precise symphony based on placement.
