Pip Dickens’ paintings often resist words. You can describe their background textures and note the distribution of marks on a colour field, and you can spot the overlap with contemporaries like Estelle Thompson and Mark Francis, but not much more.

They seem to dwell in the shadows of meaning, their veils of ghostly fabric both suggesting and concealing their myriad sources... the haunting movement of one medium plays across the vibrating fields of the other, setting up a serene interaction that replaces analysis with engagement, words with sensations.

In her shadow land there is a sense of letting go, of drifting into a reverie: shapes rise and sink through gently oscillating surfaces and disembodied paint marks hover above and pulse beneath the steady hum of their indeterminate grounds. It is the world of dusk, of quiet reflection and hazy drift, somewhere close to the border of the unconscious mind.

Review of recent works by artist and arts writer Luke Elwes.

Pip Dickens has a Masters in Fine Art from The Slade School of Fine Art graduating in 2000. She was shortlisted for the NatWest Art Prize in 1997 and was the recipient of the Jeremy Cubitt Prize (Slade School of Fine Art). She 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.

In 2010-2011 she was the Leverhulme Trust Award Artist in Residence at the University of Huddersfield, Department of Music collaborating with composer, Professor Monty Adkins on synergy between music and painting through research of Japanese aesthetics. She also undertook research in Kyoto and co-authored a resultant book ‘Shibusa - Extracting Beauty’ with Adkins. The resultant paintings culminated in a solo exhibition at the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation London in 2012.

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

Her work is in numerous private and public art collections.
