For Never Knowing Nowhere, Lipp presents a new series of works on panels, which combine painting, drawing and photography.
The works start out as abstract gestural paintings over which Lipp applies intricate patterns in thin tape. The panels are then fed through an industrial sized flatbed printer, where a photographic image from a digital file is printed on to the surface of the painting. When the panels arrive back at the studio, the masking tape is removed, partly revealing the underlying painting.
The resulting works are complex layered images, folding different registers of time and depictions of various spatial realities together. The geometrical patterns and gestural marks both efface the photographic images and stitch them together, resulting in seemingly unstable images, oscillating between different planes.
Moving from one work to the next we encounter a fragmented narrative in which we see figures passing through transient spaces shifting between interior and exterior.
Several works depict an ornate medieval iron screen, displayed at a museum in London. Lipp has gone back time and again to photograph this object and the museum visitors passing beyond. In ‘Never Knowing Nowhere’ he is using it as a recurring motif, reminding us of the never ending circularity of thought and action.
Daniel Lipp lives and works in London. Lipp (born Liestal, Switzerland, 1982) is a 2013 graduate of the Royal Academy Schools, London and Goldsmiths College, University of London.
He was awarded the Selina Chenevière Fellowship Prize, 2014

For Mountain Years, Daniel Lipp presents works from an ongoing series of original photographic negatives on Fuji colour paper.
Lipp uses a handmade camera to create a diaristic recording of his immediate surroundings and of specifically chosen places. This camera shoots directly onto photographic paper and therefore creates an indexical recording of a given time and space. The resulting photographs are, at times, highly abstracted images, with an unreal, uncanny quality due to the inverted tones and over- or under-exposure. As a result of the long exposure time, the pictures are devoid of movement and action.
The larger series is concerned with different genres of representational painting, such as portraiture, still life, and landscape. Mountain Years focuses on a romantic notion of landscape painting. The series was taken on a stay around Frauenkirch, near Davos, Switzerland, on daily excursions to the Stafelalp: a remote place in an Alpine area where the German Expressionist painter Ernst Ludwig Kirchner arrived in 1917 to recover from illness, and shortly thereafter started painting his notable mountain pictures.
Daniel Lipp (b. 1982) was awarded the Selina Chenevière Fellowship Prize upon graduating from the Royal Academy Schools in 2014. He previously studied at Goldsmiths College. Recent exhibitions include FOMO at Marian Cramer Projects, Amsterdam and Slowmo Drama at Southard Reid, London
Acronym from “fear of missing out”
Anxiety that an exciting or interesting event may currently be happening elsewhere.
Marian Cramer Projects is pleased to present FOMO, a solo show of new work by Daniel Lipp
For FOMO Lipp has made assemblages utilizing images of a cast of characters in states of passivity, refusal or relaxation. These images are combined with highly finished fragments of objects alluding to either industrial utilitarian design or the warmer language of domestic and decorative objects. Spills of pigmented resin, oxidized copper and sun damaged packing foam are here materials, which refer to usage and the body, as well as gestures from art history and particularly modern painting.
The exhibition is accompanied by a poem by Charles Veyron.
