(b. 1966 in Sidcup, Kent, lives and works in London).

Ian Davenport studied at Goldsmiths’ College of Art in London, graduating in 1988 with a B.A. in Fine Art. In the same year, he exhibited in the Damien Hirst-curated Freeze exhibition which first brought together many of the later-to-be Young British Artists. In 1991, he was nominated for the annual Turner Prize. His work has been exhibited internationally, and is included in many public collections such as the Tate, London, the Weltkunst Collection, Zurich, and the Dallas Museum of Art, Texas.

Many of Davenport’s works are made by pouring paint onto a tilted surface and letting gravity spread the paint over the surface. He has usually worked on medium density fibreboard rather than canvas, and most often employs household gloss paint, such that the viewer can glean their own reflection in the work. He has made a number of diptychs and triptychs as well as single works.

“Part painting, part performance” this wall is a punch of happiness. Speaking of happiness, as mentioned on my post earlier this week, I just moved to a new place so there’s no internet in here until next week, it’s a bit of a break – which makes me happy – and it also gives me more time to prepare the new content. Oh yeah, brand spanking new blog content that includes: an art debate project, more smart collections (affordable art), a bit of styling and even some art DIY – don’t worry! I’m going to keep it artsy, as usual.

Colore, colore, colore! Sono colate laviche quelle dell’artista inglese Ian Davenport, colate di creatività che, dopo aver seguito solertemente delle linee delimitate, si perdono fondendo le proprie tonalità e creando una nuova entità sfavillante di tinte variopinte.
La sensazione è che un imbianchino abbia fatto il lavoro a metà, che abbia rinunciato a finire l’opera lasciando spazio alla prepotenza del colore.
E meno male! Che senso avrebbero quelle linee rette e ordinate senza questa forma di ribellione?
