Mick Finch: Engrams
The Piper Gallery is excited to present a solo show of Mick Finch’s recent work. Despite showing in Paris regularly, this is his first solo show in London for fifteen years. Engrams can best be described as photo-reliefs. Finch began the series of Engrams in January 2011, during his time as an Abbey Fellow in Painting at the British School in Rome. His intention was to make a series of photo-collages, with a variation in the relief structure developed in an earlier series (entitled Bare Life). The works layer up to three photographs in a single picture form. Sections are sliced to reveal the images that lie below, coloured spaces and, sometimes, the wall that the work is hung on. The photographs are predominantly of architectural forms and urban spaces, either taken by Finch or appropriated from found images.
