Ian Rawlinson's recent work explores places of transition and changes in the psyche. These points of transformation are a recurring theme throughout his work, giving voice to ideas of identity, connection and other internal processes. His most recent projects draw upon ideas of place and memory, combining elements of the past with contemporary imagery.
His influences and imagery stem from a variety of sources ranging from ideas evoked by words and their meanings to more expansive works incorporating constructed elements. His practice incorporates aspects of painting, printmaking, writing, construction, installation and film making. He is currently producing a series of short films.
Ian lives and works in London. To date his work has been exhibited in many group and solo exhibitions both in the UK and internationally. His work is held in public and private collections. He studied at Winchester School of Art and the Royal College of Art and has taught at art colleges throughout the UK. He is currently a tutor in Printmaking at Morley College.
