Part of the Fine Art Research Unit lecture series
Wednesday 9 March, 2pm
Across his practice, Justin Hibbs (b. 1971, Poole, UK) picks apart the mechanics of spatial perception and representation, drawing upon social, political and aesthetic agendas encoded within architectural structures. In particular, much of his work is a renegotiation of the visual language and ideological legacies of modernism, seeking to establish and question relationships between real and idealised notions of space. This is enacted through a uniquely multi-disciplinary approach that incorporates painting, drawing, sculpture and architectural interventions. Justin studied at Central St. Martins, London (1991-94) and currently lives and works in London. He has exhibited his work both nationally and internationally, and has also curated a series of artist-led exhibitions. (text: Carroll / Fletcher Gallery).
Justin exhibited in the Phase 1 exhibition at the Ruskin Gallery, 4-20 Feb 2016, curated by David Ryan and Benet Spencer.
