Mark Titchner

Mark Titchner (b.1973 Luton, UK) lives and works in London. He studied at Hertfordshire College of Art & Design (1992) and Central St Martins College of Art & Design (1995). Mark Titchner uses diverse medium such as digital print, sculpture,  film, installation and performance in his work.  He received a Turner Prize nomination for his 2006  show, IT IS YOU, at the Arnolfini, Bristol. Titchner’s work incorporates multiple identities alongside past and present, secular and spiritual notions of faith.  He often employs imagery and text taken from advertising, evangelical pamphlets, trade union banners, extreme music and political propaganda that give the viewer a call to respond. The common denominator among this material is a quest for idealism and enlightenment; a desire for some form of transcendence.  Recent projects include the performance Rose with Grumbling Fur at the Roundhouse and solo exhibitions at Dilston Grove/CGP London; The Gallery at Foyles, London; Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; and The New Art Gallery, Walsall.
