Kasper Pincis

Born 1982, London, UK
Lives and works in London, UK

The work of Kasper Pincis is derived from the tradition of literature, rather than purely from the visual arts. He considers telling and narration as not specific to literature, but to be ubiquitous modes in the world of conceiving, structuring and interpreting knowledge. Using media such as newsprint, typewriters, carbon paper, pencil and letraset, Pincis' practice appears abstract, although it is conceived from the forms and materials of literature, academic theory and bureaucracy. For him, it is the form, the presence of the media itself, which already contains and indicates a possible content.
He is graduate and Gold medal winner of the Royal Academy in London and has exhibited his work widely in the UK and internationally.
