Pippi Zornoza (American, b. 1978) is a visual artist and star of the cult movie classic 'Die You Zombie Bastards!', directed by Caleb Emerson,[1] and sister of novelist Andrew Zornoza.[2] She received a BFA in Printmaking from RISD in 2001. Zornoza is a co-founder of the Dirt Palace, an artist collective, located in the Olneyville neighborhood of Providence, RI. Zornoza's visual art utilizes fabric, textiles and embroidery: her repetitive and intricate designs contain layered and repeating motifs of skulls, swords, birds and various predatory animals. Her work has exhibited internationally in Argentina, Columbia and Sweden, and was published in the art-poster anthology, The Art of Modern Rock.[3] In March 2008 a MOMA sponsored show at P.S. 1 featured Zornoza's work alongside then-current Dirt Palace artists. In 2010, Guggenheim Curator Lauren Hinkson interviewed Zornoza on Contemporary Printmaking at the AS220 galley.[4] Zornoza is also a percussionist and has played drums for the bands Bonedust, which toured the U.S. in 2006; Throne of Blood (2002–03); and Sawzall (2001–02). Her most recent project is a collaboration with musician Chrissy Wolpert co-directing and co-producing a rock opera as Bonedust.[5]
