Canadian born artist Ian Bodnaryk has been painting with acrylics for almost 20 years. During the beginning of his career he was influenced primarily by the natural world. His early paintings reflected this and consisted mostly of landscape elements. After seeing the work of Steve Mills, Luciano Ventrone, and Daniel Sprick, contemporary still life and high realism portraiture became his focus. Today his interests are constantly evolving, though his main focus features a common subject portrayed in an emotionally charged way. Ian’s artwork has been purchased internationally and can be found in several private collections around the world.

” I live in Oxford, England with my wife Ness and our black Labrador Titus. I work as a character artist at Rebellion, and previously worked at Free Radical Design, mostly on the Timesplitters series. They keep me pretty busy, but what little non-work related art that I’ve done is presented here for your amusement – Blaarg!” – Ben Newman

” I intend these paintings to operate as tools for recalibrating perception. They present a concentrated arena in which to experience simultaneous, interwoven, contradictory spaces and states of being. Dynamics of accumulation underpin my paintings. This focus comes from time spent in the company of obsessive-compulsive hoarders amidst their congested environments. Immersion in their self-made worlds has caused me to wonder about processes of preservation, how things are saved and to what end both personally as well as culturally. That the past and the present can coexist, that material possessions can stand in for psychological states and more generally the space of the mind are ideas I find especially compelling. In light of these thoughts and experiences I undertake to mirror the ecstasy and catastrophe knit into the impulse to have access to everything. ” – Sarah Walker

To Dust by Jonathan Schipper : Two sculptures are hung from a mechanism that gently grinds them into each other. The sculptures will slide against one another for many years creating new unimagined form.
