Jezella Pigott is a visual artist specialising in drawing, video, and installation. Pigott sets to examine the power of drawing, as both part of a ritual within its process and as a form of magic.
Her practice draws on the history of cult female anthropology, examining how women have been depicted through ideology and culture. Using a range of printing methods Pigott creates her own symbols which sets out to de-construct and reinterpret into her own representation of the ecstatic female.
The circle is a reoccurring symbol within Pigott’s work. It represents the feminine and acts as a representation of her moving body when making a drawing over time.
Jezella Pigott is currently doing a residency at The Early Years Nursery, Oxford, beginning May 2016. She has exhibited at Bargehouse London for the exhibition ‘We all draw’ and at the National Gallery in 2015. Jezella has completed a masters in drawing, Wimbledon London UAL in 2014-15 and studied BA fine art at Oxford Brookes University, Oxford 2005-2008
