THE PORTRAITURE OF TRISTAN PIGOTT

THE PORTRAITURE OF TRISTAN PIGOTT

Tristan Pigott‘s work is incredibly striking, provocative, and awkward. These oil paintings are blatant reflections of contemporary youth culture, revealing the careful narcissism of selfies and social media. The concept of portraiture is intertwined with the curated nature of the presentation of the self. Tristan is a British artist who takes traditional portraiture and turns it on its head, making calculated distortions from interesting perspectives to let personalities and personas shine through. The way he portrays his subjects, who are often his friends, is not necessarily flattering. (With no filter, so to speak.)

This could be defined as the new age of portraiture- an era of complex, contemporary interpretations combined with traditional applications. Tristan approaches sexuality, discomfort, and interpersonal relationships with humor and complexity. These snapshots caught in time have a distinct style and color palette, depicted honestly with a tinge of surrealism. The scenes, which are often references from photographs, harbor strange narratives and satirical undertones while remaining unremarkable in nature. Depicting everyday objects, situations, and people, something remarkable happens when Tristan pulls the scene together with surrealistic backgrounds and realistic figures.

Indefinite means something that lasts for an unknown or unstated length of time. This projects shows struggles and fighting through a series of contemporary photographies which hopefully any viewer can relate to.
