Born 1950 London, England
John Kippin was a co-founder of the Basement Group and is an artist and photographer who works largely within the broad context of landscape. Many of his works integrate texts and images in ways that challenge the realist paradigm that traditionally underpins a range of documentary and realist practices.
John Kippin's work pays allegiance to the conventions and traditions of pictorial landscape whilst foregrounding issues within contemporary culture and politics. In addition to works made for the gallery, he has produced a number of public art-works and publications.
