New Orleans, Louisiana
Through an environmental lens, Pippin Frisbie-Calder creates visual works that demystify scientific outcomes. Working with microbiologists, ornithologists and biologists, she creates large-scale installations about climate change, species extinction, and stories of global community, taught to us by Neotropical-Nearctic migrants. Her prints and installations have been shown widely around New Orleans, most prominently as a solo show at the New Orleans Contemporary Art Center. She has also exhibited at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Art in Michigan, and in Indonesia, Denver, Maine, South Carolina, and Rhode Island. She received her MFA in printmaking from Tulane University in 2017 and her BFA with honors from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2008. She is represented by LeMieux Galleries.

My work transposes Southern swamps into different media and series. Most of my work emerges from collaborations with microbiologists and ornithologists, working together to demystify the teaming life in the wetlands. I use a variety of printmaking techniques to best capture the emotional expression of the specific subject.”
