A fine art lecturer at Lancaster University, Pip Dickens, is all set to reflect her creative skills in a brand new city centre exhibition.
‘Mirrors’ is a solo exhibition of new exploratory paintings by painter Pip Dickens which explores the phenomenon of mirrors and how we might see ourselves reflected in them.
Pip examines the mirror as a magic device - a portal through which, like Alice and her Looking Glass, we might climb through to explore worlds both familiar and unfamiliar.
“These images are not always in harmony with their surroundings,” explains Pip. “Some are whimsical, some seem dark or disturbing but most attempt to question through animation of the inanimate to what degree we use masks of our own making to deflect others from seeing our true selves.”
‘Mirrors’ is funded by Arts Council England, using money from the National Lottery and Lancaster University.
Pip has exhibited widely in the UK and overseas. Her work is in numerous private collections and also public collections including The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery at the University of Leeds and Cartwright Hall Art Gallery (Bradford Museums & Galleries).
