Flin Sharp’s practice is informed by the chronicle of painting throughout its modernity. Interested in the platitudes and complex references that are laden within the mediums history, his works function as an archeological study into paintings contemporary relevance and trajectory within a political and speculative climate. Employing a multiplicity of styles and references which engage with ideas and tones of sincerity and apathy Sharp's work acts as a vehicle by which the practice of painting can continue to be scrutinised.

 

Sharp completed an MFA at Sydney’s National Art School in 2018 and has exhibited frequently since 2016 in group, solo and two-person shows at Knulp, Ankles, Stacks Projects and Alaska Projects.
