Ian Segrave's work is concerned with the objectivity of painting and what it is capable of doing through its own unique conditions. Spatial awareness of form and position offers Segrave the potential to create and explore new dialogues, and the physical/structural nature of his frameworks lend themselves to innumerable variations and permutations, allowing each to function as a sculptural navigation of space. Metaphorical allegories are created via the process of transcendence from painting to material - with the resulting mutations approaching an anthropomorphic quality.
Segrave studied Fine Art at Anglia Ruskin, University of Essex (2011) and is based at the Synchro Studio in Leigh. He has taken part in exhibitions in London and the South East, including 'Free Range' at the Truman Brewery, 'A Bittersweet Christmas' at Trispace Gallery and 'Corporeal' at RK Burt Gallery, as well as working with the 3G Collective in London.
