Printmaker Pippin Frisbie-Calder’s work merges the wetlands and science in her printed works. Based in New Orleans since 2010 Pippin’s woodcuts are rooted in Louisiana’s environmental struggles around land loss, invasive species and human impact. By illustrating the complexities surrounding Louisiana’s ecology her work investigates the past and future relationship of humans with the swamps. Pippin’s background includes a Masters in Printmaking from Tulane University, a BFA with honors in printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design, a residency at A Studio in the Woods (LA), a residency in Providence (RI), a study of large scale woodcuts abroad in Indonesia, a residency at Big Cypress National Preserve (FL), a residency and teaching position in Haiti, and special showings at a number of galleries, including in New Orleans, Florida, Maine, Denver, Providence (RI), and Yogyakarta (Indonesia).
