6 July to 5 October
We are delighted to present Mythomania, a new body of work by Canadian artist Ian Kirkpatrick.
Ian produces large scale sculpture and 2D artwork using a variety of hard and soft materials such as perspex, vinyl, card and tarpaulin.
He uses graphic design software to create the elaborate surfaces of his work, creating layered narratives.
His monumental works combine the ancient and modern, referencing totems and industrial signage. He explores mythic narratives from Greek legends to modern superheroes.
Ian’s work draws cultural connections between present-day global societies and ancient civilisations. It aims to show how myth is still a vital force in culture.
The exhibition spans two galleries, the Linear and the Link. Ian is creating a site-specific piece to stand between the cafe and Linear space so customers will be able to enjoy his work seated in the cafe.
