The Sweet Dreams of Pip & Pop

Pip & Pop is the bright and fizzy signature of Australian artist Tanya Schultz. With installations titled “Inside This Dream,” “Treasure Mountain,” and “Peach Blossom,” the artist delivers worlds of rainbows and pastel sugar, populated by glowing puffs and glittering poms. It’s as if a friendly giant’s magical scoop of ice cream splatted down to earth in a magnificent heap, drawing out throngs of curious, candy store aliens.

It takes a special talent and vision to create work that appeals to both adults and children, and Tanya’s work bridges that generational gap, with visual treats of enchantment ready to be enjoyed by viewers of all ages. Currently working sans her former collaborator (of five years) Nicole Andrijevic, who left the partnership in 2011 to pursue a different career, Tanya creates immersive installations and artworks from a delightful grab bag of eclectic materials including sugar, glitter, candy, plastic flowers, and various objects she discovers while traveling.

A master of transforming spaces, Tanya (likely the daughter of Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka) works to build both independent and collaborative works that combine installation, painting, wall-works and sculpture. The artist’s incredibly adorable, yet highly detailed and technical works “embrace notions of abundance, utopian dreams and fleeting pleasure,” as stated on her website. The artist is “fascinated with ideas of paradise and wish-fulfillment described in folk tales, mythologies and cinema.”

From 2008 to present, Tanya’s majestic dreamlands have netted her twelve awards and grants and earned her exhibitions all over the world, most recently in the Netherlands and Japan.
