Pippa Eason's work makes observations of performative online gesture through sculpture, digital drawings, GIFs, and collages. Her practice symbolizes the crispness of advertising, with a hand-crafted touch. She makes comments on our positions as artists in the emerging art world, with hints at status anxiety, smartphone addiction, and meme culture. Her sculpture is ambiguous, though they aim to pick up on trend aesthetics in art, fashion and pop culture.
Pippa lives and works in Manchester. She graduated with an MA in Art & Design from Leeds Beckett University in 2016. Recent exhibitions and projects include: The Ball of My Foot (Solo Exhibition, curated by Lucy Cowling) at Seager Gallery (London, 2019), Much Too Shy (Group Exhibition) at Air Gallery (Manchester, 2020), LGM-1 (Group Exhibition) at The Function Suite (London, 2019), FIG.1 LIMELIGHT (Group Exhibition) at Muddy Yard (London, 2018), The Vitrines: Pippa Eason (Solo Exhibition, curated by William Clarke) at Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun (Leeds, 2016).
