Surrey Artist of the Year 2019
Pippa's art looks at man's inevitable impact on nature by using reclaimed plastic bags, discarded bottle tops and found beach plastic ... ubiquitous and disposable materials and objects that do untold damage to our environment if discarded and used carelessly. Plastic's unimaginably long lifespan coupled with how casually we treat it becomes a perfect metaphor for our blind overconsumption of the material.
