Underground, a two person show. Painter Jock McFadyen RA presents 7 large paintings with accompanying field recordings by musician Jem Finer.
The exhibition features seven large pictures from McFadyen’s Underground series from the late 1990s. These images are culled from various London tube stations. Bank and Elephant border on pure abstraction but are pulled back by the inclusion of familiar signage and iconography. These empty, haunting works are viewed in concert with a visceral soundscape formed of edited field recordings by the musician and artist Jem Finer. Like the paintings, this piece is composed of random elements thrown up by the underground but punctuated by the familiar. Announcements, signals and even a busker draw us back to subterranean reality.
