James Epps – Here On In

13 June – 22 August 2015

Norwich-based artist and Bloc Projects member James Epps created a new painted work in situ across a series of five covered windows on the exterior the Bloc Studios building, adjacent to the Bloc Projects gallery. The work is a development of a Bloc Billboard proposal and continues Epps’ ongoing expansion of his two-dimensional works into sculpture, installations and site-responsive, temporal pieces.

Epps works with a range of materials to develop his murals and paintings, including various types of tape, paint and found items often used in relief. Here On In continues across the five painted panels as one work, with the intention of bringing the spaces between them and the building they are housed by into the composition of the work.

James Epps graduated with BA Fine Art from Norwich University College of the Arts in 2009. His recent exhibitions include Just Like That (solo exhibition), OUTPOST, Norwich 2014; Oriel Davies Open, Oriel Davies Gallery, Newtown, 2014; Creekside Open, London, 2013 and Savorr V, 8 Redwell Street, Norwich, 2012. He was selected for the Escalator Retreat Homework at Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge in 2011.
