Pippa Lattey is an artist working out of Vancouver BC. Her sculptures display an economy of form punctuated with surges of colour, movement and sound. They play with perception, with movement, surface pattern and reflective surfaces. She fabricates them in an ordinary fashion, yet they have an extraordinary vitality. Lattey selects materials and found objects for their formal qualities and emotional appeal: party balloons, christmas decorations, textiles, food. She animates items in a mesmerizing repetition, rendering them absurd. They become characters.
The work exists in a non-human centric world of living objects and vital materiality. It is informed by inquiries into the metaphysics of objects, the science of systems, and the math of patterns. Lattey holds a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Victoria, a Diploma in Fine Art from Langara College, and a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
