For the past thirty years Séraphine Pick has engaged with figments of memory and explored the body as a site of consciousness in her practice. Most recently, she has looked to digital information technologies to decode aspects of universal human experience.
Séraphine Pick was born in Kawakawa, Bay of Islands, in 1964. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Canterbury in 1987 and gained a Diploma of Teaching from Christchurch College of Education in 1991. In 1994 she received the Olivia Spencer-Bower Foundation Art Award, followed in 1995 by the Rita Angus Cottage Residency in Wellington. In 1999 she was a Frances Hodgkins Fellow at the University of Otago, Dunedin. Her work has been the subject of two major survey exhibitions organised by the Christchurch Art Gallery in 2009 and by The Dowse Art Museum in 2015.
