Ian Kirkpatrick – Various Sculptures

Ian Kirkpatrick is a Canadian contemporary artist and graphic designer currently based at East Street Studios in Leeds, UK. Kirkpatrick has been exhibiting my work across the UK and internationally, with shows in Montreal, New Orleans, London, Berlin, Rotterdam, New York and Chicago. Here’s a further statement by the artist about his work:

“My work explores the sculptural and communicative potential of commercial packaging design. I’m interested in the ways that everyday disposable products can be used to express society’s myths, fears and obsessions—recalling the ritualistic function of ancient decorative vessels such as Greek vases and Egyptian sarcophagi. My sculptures collapse and travel in their own plinths, and are easily assembled into ‘instant’ exhibitions that reflect the parallel aesthetics of museums, galleries and department stores.”
