StatementIan's approach to printmaking combines his interest in landscape, design, logo and symbols. As a reductive artist in pursuit of a minimal outcome, he uses a mixture of digital, litho, collage and commercial materials. His unique delineation of the landscape is based on a stripped-down reality, referencing early travel posters and drawing on the early twentieth-century design aesthetic. Working digitally, he strips away the topographical, stylising the landscape to create a logo-type symbol of an actual place.

ToiletsPublic toilet on harbour side.

Access DetailsSome steep steps leading up to studios.
