Pip Culbert was born in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1938 and attended the Royal College of Art in London, where she graduated in 1961. Culbert has been exhibited at the Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa; Fifth Street Gallery, London; Fouladi Projects, San Francisco; and Christchurch Art Gallery, New Zealand, among others.
"Pip Culbert’s artwork deconstructs every day fabric objects and pares them down to their essential seams. In this process of reduction, she re-contextualized the object, be it a button-down shirt or a quilt, into a weightless line drawing, still familiar but now freed of their ephemeral limitations. She liberates the confinement prescribed by function and transports the textile into a lyrical, poetic dimension. Her work embraces the minimalist ideal of less is more, reminding us that there are infinite possibilities in the space between the lines." - Fouladi Projects
