Pippa Ward

Pippa’s work often involves the gathering, manipulation and arranging of materials, particularly plastics – mainly discarded carrier bags and bottle tops.  Her work looks at the effect these ubiquitous objects have on nature.  They are made to attract, they are used for just moments, and soon they are discarded into the natural environment.

Pippa combines thread with fused plastic bags to describe the onslaught of plastic on nature.  The images seem harmless, fun and colourful but together with the titles, they portray a bleaker picture…together with the titles, they portray a picture of their impending parasitic symbiosis.
