“FINISH FETISH”, explores process, perception and polished surfaces in a post-­?minimal present. This is a follow-­?up exhibition to the gallery’s 2013 London Art Fair Project stand featuring BEN GOODING, CLIVE HANZ HANCOCK & PATRICK MORRISSEY.

“Finish Fetish,” is a phrase associated with the 1960’s/70’s minimalist art movement,
where the high sheen of artwork compared to bright buffed-­?out hot rods. Majority of works often used materials such as plastic, glass, light and resin creating shiny, smooth, hand crafted surfaces of physical and metaphysical reflection. This aesthetic continues to thrive today with its focus on surface, colour, and light. This exhibition engages with minimalist impulse from a 21st century British perspective.
