With a shared passion for hand painted letterforms and the manual aspect of design, both rooted in a background of graphic design and sign painting, London based artists Corin Kennington and Harry Fieber present 70 x 100. A show showcasing a new body of work that combines the methods and techniques found within each of their practice in several 70cm x 100cm formats.
A short introduction is due to this talented pair. With a background in sign painting, Harry Fieber is co- founder and creative director of multi-disciplinary design studio UTILE. Whilst Corin Kennington, after having his first solo show at The Book Club’s partner venue Stories last year, has since exhibited as a Select at Pick Me Up, Somerset House, as well as closely working with clients such as Camden Town Brewery, Polpo Restaurants and ZSL London Zoo.
Back to the 70 x 100 exhibition however, throughout the display’s exhibition pieces, the duo explore the realm of typography in an expressive and relentless manner honing in on the physicality colour and composition. Whilst also digitally and physically manipulating the subject matter, both persist in investigating abstract structures and aesthetics found within painted letterforms.
The show was combined with a supporting publication designed and published by 12-b that goes onto to showcase the various processes, techniques and working methods used by the artists, as well as their interpretation and creative documentation of the imagery, information and process of the artwork. The series of 70x100cm hand painted and screen printed pieces are on display at The Book Club in Shoreditch until Sunday 23rd April 2017.
