The ARTIST IAN MCCULLEY
Examples of work
I work in groups of structurally related paintings. These groups are inter-related. They start but do not stop and I add to the group when inspired to do so. These groups can be numerous- up to one hundred structurally similar images or as few as six.
The initial starting point for a group could be; a failed image, a person, a book (preferably surreal), a piece(s) of music (increasingly so) and of course, the landscape I see and live in. Other landscapes inform my paintings Ė seen or imagined- e.g. Dungeness or the puszta (the Hungarian plain). I donít need to be in the landscape, I could be in a city but the painting process would be the same.
BIOGRAPHY - CV
I studied Basic Design at Winchester College of Art, 3-D Construction at Southampton College of Art and Trent Park College, London. I began painting in 1980, initially applying paint to constructions I had made, and then constructing paintings in 2-D on canvas and paper.
