3-dimensional structures by Pippa Andrews

Pippa Andrews uses textile techniques to make 3-dimensional structures derived from organic and architectural forms. Frames, bridges, shelters, building facades, free-standing structures and cityscapes are probably the main source of inspiration for her work. 
  • Hand printed fabric with channels sewn into it to hold painted wooden rods. The artwork was made it when the artist was researching ways to make a three dimensional forms that could be stored as a flat fabric. This is why this individual piece seems like a study on tents or ephemeral shelters.

  • Standard quilt: tumbling blocks/ The repetitive pattern resembles the frame of a building facade. In fact a lot of her inspiration comes from the forms of modern buildings, both the 'normal' office facades of steel and glass grids and more recent biomorphic forms particularly those with tensile membrane structures.
