Mark Titchner: An Image of Truth - EXHIBITION

Wednesday 25th June 2014 9:30am - Sunday 17th August 2014 6pm 107 Charing Cross Road Exhibition, Free Event

For the inaugural exhibition at the new Gallery at Foyles, Turner Prize-nominee and Central Saint Martins alumnus Mark Titchner has created a unique single artwork - a monolith to the poetic resonance of the word.

Employing industrial vinyl graphic manufacturing processes usually limited to street advertising, Titchner works with a computer to craft an elaborate interplay of historical fonts, marquetry and geometric tracery which is printed direct to the vinyl.

Obliquely referencing the work of English painter, poet and printmaker William Blake (1757-1827), who was born in nearby Soho and spent time in the parish church of St Giles-in-the-Fields, known as the 'Poets Church' close to the modern junction of Charing Cross Road and Tottenham Court Road, the Foyles piece features two dominant texts. The result is a monument to the word, an imposing mirrored monolith that questions both the transmission and the audience reception and interpretation of the written text.

Mark Titchner was born in Luton (1973), and lives and works in London. He has exhibited in numerous national and international group exhibitions including the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007 and the British Art Show in 2006. He was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2006 and was Artist in Residence at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto in 2012. As a student at Central Saint Martins in the 90s, his painting studio was situated on the very same floor as the new Gallery at Foyles, which he launches so spectacularly with this new work.

TitchnerGallery open 9.30am-9pm Monday-Saturday, 11.30am-6pm Sunday
Admission Free
