Pippa Eason b.1993 is a contemporary artist, based in Manchester.
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.
