Pigott’s paintings are simple explorations of human characteristics
which play with proportion and ideas of the surreal. His
interest in how people perform in everyday life has informed
his work and he attempts to exploit these characteristics of a
person’s self-projection. A catalyst for this projection is fashion,
which he makes poignant, whether in a humorous approach or
through composition. Although photography plays a large part
in his preparation, Pigott wants to maintain a distance from
photographic realism. He states:

I feel keeping a division between the two enables an interesting
detachment from real life, yet leaves a strong sense of realism.
I’m constantly striving to improve my work and see what realism
I can achieve with oil paint, but searching for an interesting
differentiation from traditional portraiture.

In current developments technical exploration has added larger,
freer brushstrokes to help deconstruct his image backgrounds,
allowing the viewer’s eye to pass around the piece more easily
as well as allowing figures to bounce off of the canvas.
Pigott believes it is important that his paintings are personal,
even when exploring something that can be as transparent as a
person’s socially constructed front, such as their fashion, or the
clothes they wear. He does this by carefully selecting the
models he chooses to paint, whether they are friends or family.
His work earns an ambiguity which draws the viewer in,
allowing them to spend time working out the different
connotations of the surreal narratives he has created.
