Unpicking Places: Ways of Making by Christopher Tipping

28th July - 14th October 2022

Artist Christopher Tipping has delivered creative projects in urban public spaces for over 30 years.

This exhibition brings together a range of his work, both conceptual and completed that respond to place - and notably a range of recent and current commissions undertaken across Medway’s flagship waterfront developments.

“We all store impressions of places we have visited and know intuitively how somewhere makes us feel. I have been creatively looking at places since I was child, surveying spaces and gently unpicking them. The trigger for a project is often a detail, something out of the usual, inspiring a new narrative.

I see social & industrial history trodden into pavements, threshold slabs & worn door handles. I notice texture, colour & context, the expressive language of a building, the characteristic craft & hand of an individual maker.

Curiosity, interpretation & telling stories are the sharpened tools of my trade. I seek out what might be considered hidden and forgotten, making connections between things past and present and forging new spaces and ways of making. Christopher Tipping, 2022
