Exhibition Review - Finbar Ward: 'In Absence' FOLD, London till 7th May 2016.

Image of FOLD London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.

It moved, I swear, 
with serious mouths,
endorsing codes, 
plotting betrayal.  - Drenched Co.

Comment: "Finbar's work reminds me of the French artist Brig Laugier's reconstructions of the book as object. I see parallels with Ms Laugier's examination of the media specific term 'book' in the context of Roland Barthes essay "From Work to Text". In a time when few subscribe to a primacy of the medium, Finbar's art questions the limits of painting and the movement away from it towards the ubiquitous 'works of art' while sticking obstinately to his chosen language. I loved how he gave the gallery polygonal reptilian scales.." - Raj
