Pierre Picot

Pierre Picot

Born in 1948 in Tours, France, Pierre Picot came to the United States with his parents at the age of 12.  Following a traditional education in public schools and state universities, he graduated from Cal Arts with an MFA in design.  A love for places and things foreign, disquieting, and strance has informed his work throughout his career.  Regarding the prints in this gallery, “boats have always been , if not a major part of day to day reality, then certainly an element of my memory, tie spent as a boy in Normandy…a feeling I conjure up at will in my daydreams of travel.  Boats on water and the open air, floating between two massive elements, in between sea and sky, reduced to a mere speck, free.”
