Statement

Pip Dickens has a Masters in Fine Art from The Slade School of Art (UCL, London) graduating in 2000 and was trained under the internationally renowned artists, Tess Jaray, Estelle Thompson, Liz Rideal and David Hepher.

She studied her BA at Leeds Metropolitan University where she has been both a Visiting Lecturer and, from 2006 - 2008, a part-time lecturer on the BA (Hons) Fine Art degree course. She has also promoted visual and performance art whilst Marketing Officer at Leeds Metropolitan University Gallery & Theatre prior to embarking on her MFA.

She regularly shows her work in London and has also exhibited in San Francisco at The Business Arts Council, at San Francisco Marina and with Alina Sandhu's private gallery Tangent Contemporary Art.

Prior to studying art (1978-1985) she worked extensively across the Middle East from the relatively young age of seventeen until her mid-twenties. She perceives this period of her life as critical to her outlook as an artist.

Her first London solo show was with Cassian De Vere Cole at his Notting Hill gallery apartment in 2000. After the closure of his gallery she had numerous group and solo shows in London including ‘Bittersweet’ at Danielle Arnaud. ‘Oil and Stone’ at East 73rd Gallery and several exhibitions with Mayfair gallery, Sarah Myerscough Fine Art.

She was shortlisted for the NatWest Art Prize in 1997 and is the recipient of the Jeremy Cubitt Prize (Slade School of Fine Art). She also won the Edna Lumb Art Travel Prize in 1995 where she travelled to Iceland. She was a nominee for the Jerwood Contemporary Painters 2009 and shortlisted for the Celeste Painting Prize 2009. She has a major solo exhibition planned in 2010 at Cartwright Hall Art Gallery, Bradford and will tour selected venues in the UK until end 2012. In 2010-2011 she is the Leverhulme Trust Award Artist in Residence at the University of Huddersfield, Department of Music. She is currently Lecturer in Painting at Lancaster University.

In addition to her painting practice she has worked with Ken Shuttleworth’s architectural practice, Make Architects, on a major integral public art commission for a prestigious development in London.

Her work has been purchased by a variety of private collectors including architects, commercial, leisure and financial institutions.
