Winner of Notting Hill Housing art commission announced

I am delighted to announce that I have been chosen as the winner of the Brackenbury House art commission. Thank you to all who voted! The competition to create an artwork for the new Notting Hill Housing development in West London was run in conjunction with art consultants Works in Print.
Katie Bond, Director of Notting Hill Home Ownership said, "Ian's sculpture is a great example of how a delicately creative design can still have a bold impact, both visually and emotionally. We are really pleased the public chose such a well thought out and attractive design that will sit so well in the Brackenbury Square development."
The artwork will be unveiled in November.

Notting Hill Housing, the developers of a new collection of stylish luxury apartments at Brackenbury Square, are commissioning a wall-mounted sculpture for the public-facing exterior wall on the corner of Goldhawke Road and Hammersmith Grove.

The new artwork will be unveiled this winter. Both the completed Brackenbury Square apartments and the winning artwork will form a new piece of Hammersmith and Fulham's history. Once part of pasture land available to shepherds travelling to Smithfields Market, the area is now home to a contemporary and stylish new landmark, changing the face of the local landscape.

Drawn 2015 at the RWA - a busy Private View

We decided to 'pop' down to Bristol last night for the Private View of Drawn 2015 and Drawing On: The Ingram Collection of Modern British and Contemporary Art at the Royal West of England Academy. The M6 is not the best place to be on a Friday afternoon but we were glad we made the effort! Great to see lots of people filling the gallery and so many different approaches to drawing both traditional and contemporary.
