Another year, another zine fair.

This year was the best one yet, for me anyway. I created a new called Sheena, with a central character of the same name. This was different to things I have done before because I used the same character throughout instead of a selection of random drawings. This purpose made me make a better zine than I ever have. It verges on comic book but not quite, it has no real narrative. Sheena is special to me nonetheless, because she basically is me.

Hey there, it has been a while since I posted but since then I have made three new zines of both my drawing and writing!

I recently had a stall at the Melbourne Tonerpalooza zine fair (first of its name). It was terrifically fun and scary at the same time. I met a lot of other awesome and lovely zinemakers/buyers. There is also a post about it on the thousands where I’m briefly featured!

So here you go:

Hello, just calling to say I have made a new A5 zine (very exciting!) and it is now for sale on my Etsy site. It contains recent drawings and illustrations of mine as well as a longer poem at the very end. There are 16 pages and it is bound with red cotton thread. There is a caption to go with each drawing which are generally about self-preservation or me personally and thoughts about some different aspects of life in a quirky manner. :) Also if you reside in Melbourne you can pick up a copy at Sticky Institute (lucky you!) and check out the other awesome zines they have there as well, no shipping required! I am very glad to have an outlet for all these drawings and ideas. Here are a coupe of preview images:

On Friday I installed my very first solo exhibition in Frankston, at a gallery called Punk Milk with help from all the wonderful people there. It was super exciting!! but of course stressful too. It is on until Thursday of this week. It was a lot of work for just one week of showing but definitely worth it :) I exhibited a series of framed watercolour illustrations, all my journals from the last 6 months, various sketches, a new zine, two stop motion animation projections and the paper and plushie characters that acted in them. For those who can’t make it here are some photos to ogle, that I took today while gallery sitting.

       

Here is the artists statement that I provided also (and rustled up at the last minute ;)

Katherine Pigott is a Melbourne-based emerging artist working in the field of animation, drawing and watercolour illustration.

‘A World Defined by Dreams’ is based around ideas of the earth’s natural cycles, the relationship between man and nature and also narrative and fantasy as a form of cathartic process. Its main focus however is on these visions of an otherworldly kind that are somehow so familiar.

These ‘otherworldly’ depictions show isolation, destruction, transformation, fear and longing. Yet they appear hopeful and inspired by the greater powers and potential mysteries of the planet.

Dreams are a starting point for visual association and further ideas and brainstorming. The commanding visuals in dreams can be so impressive on the mind that there is a need to put it on paper or in motion somehow. Drawing acts as an investigation into the understanding of dreams and the further regions of the brain untouched by conscious thinking. Each drawing is like one moment captured in the timeline of thoughts that travel through one’s mind; they are just the beginning of a story that the viewer has to finish in whatever way they choose. And just like in a dream the viewer can end up in the middle of a story or place with no idea how they got there.  Unlike traditional storytelling, these images don’t give so much away, the mystery in a drawing can be the most interesting part. Many of the works also embody and describe the intuitive process of drawing itself and in the case of the two films showing, the way in which the medium of animation has the ability to dictate narrative and process.

While displaying personal sentiments and questions, crises etc, each work describes in some way a universal predicament, a human predicament.
