Ian MacLeod (IanMacLeod)

I’m an abstract painter living and working in British Columbia, Canada.

Biography

I’m intrigued by patterns found in nature. I paint in an intuitive manner with sweeping gestures of opaque and transparent layers of paint to create surface texture and depth - focused on pure abstraction. Like a spiritual journey my work emerges from my consciousness. As in meditation, I am present in the moment.

Thanks for the favs.
You truely do inspiring surfaces, so free in colour and texture. You capture nature in all it´s richness without reducing it. Of course I see monumental landscapes, but it flips in abstaction and back so theses piece do not leave you alone, are thrilling.
Keep it on,
Jochen

Hello Ian,
Thanks for your comments. I intend continuing the figurative stuff. That work is, perhaps, more personal, more thoughtful and less intuitative ( or too literal ). The other work ( I mean the coast paintings and the interiors ) are more experimental and tend towards some form of gestural abstraction.I think its fine to produce diverse work, for me anyway.I,m thinking about new images for the figurative stuff at the moment and working on a series of more abstract paintings. I am trying to introduce more layering and texture without loosing the fluidity and the gestural quality. Hence my interest in your work , which manages to do all of that and more.

Hello Ian, Thanks for including my work among your favorites. Like yours very much. Would like myself to move towards abstraction but retaining elements of figuration;
Best wishes,
Patrick
