UK/RAINE: EMERGING ARTISTS FROM THE UK AND UKRAINE

Finbar Ward

London, United Kingdom

The constructions I produce are born primarily out of the language of painting; the idea of a picture found or caught out during a deferral of closure is what determines the works identity. An ongoing tussle between a works undoing and the conflicting attempts towards the notion of a grand conclusion has evolved to personify my practise. Recent works hope to embody, in both a material and allegorical sense, a kind of inherent futility in their half licensed display of failure. Stretchers and stray timbers are stacked, packed and compressed in forms and motifs that allude to the minimalist tradition, albeit a flatpack incarnation.
