Join Ian for a unique painterly experience in his studio. Ian’s paintings are influenced by the Abstract Expressionists – for their emotional rawness and mark making, and also by the Renaissance – for composition, light and movement. Onto these he layers influences from contemporary culture and his own personal experience. He aims to instill a classical feel to his work finding new visual paths, the result being an exploration of the purpose of painting itself.
Ian is exceptional at gesture painting and fluid mixing of colours. If you are a fan of classic painting but also enjoy the mystery in abstract painting curious of how you could express yourself, then this is certainly an artist to spend a day. You will enjoy a one to one practical experience looking into the way Ian works, sharing ideas and concepts leading through to drawing and painting.
“In a world preoccupied with technology, there is something remarkable about painting. It connects us back to man’s earliest and most elemental forms of self-expression.”
