Christopher T Finch
The Artist

Christopher T Finch is a British contemporary
abstract artist, born in 1990 at The Royal Bolton Hospital.
Living all his life in the North West, he has spent his time
being absorbed in studying art and photography.

This year (2011) he received his BA Honours
in Photography, at the University of Central Lancashire, Preston.
He currently lives in the town of Wigan in Greater Manchester.

The work he produces often subverts ordinary
perspective. It reflects his inspiration from Surrealist Theory,
concepts that suggest, “…error is certainty’s
constant companion, error is the corollary of evidence”
(Louis Aragon).

Starting his work with photography, his inspiration
from various movements in modern art recently has spurred him
into other mediums. Whilst painting and drawing are two prime
examples, he has developed a set of techniques that are unique
to his practice. These include the production and use of home-made
cameras and the combination of light drawing with digital collage.

Of his work Christopher says that he

“… is informed by the movements
in art and literature over the last century, with the intention
of innovating art in this one. Looking at the normalised methods
of production of mainstream art today, my passion lies in
finding the more interesting compromise. My understanding
is that the rhetoric of visual conventions in mass media is
a root cause for social and political alienation. Furthermore,
the goal of my ever-expanding practice is to encourage new
clarity of vision by distorting the conventions of day-to-day

In 2008, one of his photographs won a regional
competition hosted by the
Manchester Metropolitan University, coinciding with a display
of the work at the Manchester Art Gallery as part of the award

Following this he has moved from project
to project. From late 2010 to 2011, one project involved a collaboration
with the regional television presenters from BBC North West
Tonight .

At The National Photography Symposium
2011 in Liverpool, Christopher was given the opportunity
to pitch his work in front of international and local visitors.This
ran alongside the Look11 International Photography Festival ,
which he also took part in.
