Graphic designer, software developer, draftsman and artistic director, Ian Palmer has always been a “creator”. Born in London in 1964, he moved to the hills of Lomagne with his family in 2005 and opened his studio wherein he gives life to his works which are driven by abstraction.

The journey to dreamlike representation

In his creations, Ian Palmer favours movement. This allows the viewer’s gaze to escape their immediate surroundings and for their mind to travel into a dreamlike atmosphere. The artist’s vision is to create a space of freedom of expression and emotion.

Through the use of a brush, knife or sponge, he transforms his canvases into a space that is conducive to the vagrancy of the mind. A perfect control of the balance of the composition offers a simple space where one can contemplate and acknowledge their emotions.

The state of our souls, an appropriation

Ian Palmer’s states of mind are reflected in all of his works. Through lyrical abstraction, he arouses feelings, expressing his thoughts on the social and political events happening around him. The artist’s energy conveys a message that is free to be interpreted however the viewer would like - it is an expression that can be re-appropriated for all.
