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.”

Stuart Griggs – Psychedelic Paintings

Stuart Griggs an artist of the imaginal. He works with interior narrative, symbol and intention as a way to visually portray the numinous. Griggs’s work is an exploration into the nexus of drawing and digital art, synthesising the two approaches into an idiosyncratic visual language. It is a journey into the creative process that immerses & probes into the psychic pool of collective archetypes.

Multidimensional spaces & symbols weave together to explore and manifest the primordial & the transpersonal, resonating with a profound sense of awareness of our unity & interconnection.
Themes of sacred divinity, fertility, ritual, flow, transcendence & healing are synergising through the imagery as he allows a tacit sense of the numinous to unfold and transmit.

Griggs’s work expands and interacts in our globally connected environment. It is cross cultural fusion that utilises new technology while integrating archaic elements, shamanic motifs and stylistic influences from, symbolism, surrealism, abstraction, and contemporary illustration. It mirrors our times, with a boundary dissolving shift in perspective. In a time of socio political and environmental crisis the works message offers a paradigm of interconnectivity and healing within ourselves and nature.
