A self-taught surrealist, Ian’s challenges the predominance of pop art better known as a contemporary collage. Reconstructing reality through his lens, he creates visually dynamic hybrids teetering towards candid, street photography.
Using a mix of portraits and foliage, his subject matter is simultaneously serious and tongue-in-cheek; a technique that is deeply referential of collage.
Via the assemblage of different objects and images, collage interrogates the fundamental concept of what it is to create art, whilst offering a prismatic reflection of social change. Ian explores the spaces between dream and reality, allowing the unconscious to express itself.
