"...Gwyn Hanssen Piggott is gathering potent visual juxtapositions, stringing the beads in rhythmic rehearsals of her own object language. In this later phase of a long working life she is producing perfect summations, distillations, of her 'known' forms. Clear light and a clean shelf is what they need. As she says: 'Luckily, beauty can't be understood - only hoped for and sometimes felt'.
