Ian Whitmore - Interdisciplinary Artist
Greenroom began as an exploration of the artists shared love of paper. Using abstract printmaking as a ground or stage for figurative material, a loose narrative emerged suggestive of change and adjustment.
This narrative was further developed through the use of form and colour, the work becoming more subdued, flatter and formal post wave.
Greenroom was created specifically for DUET and represented a new collaboration for the artists. Starting with a shared interest in paper and printmaking, abstract and figurative material was pooled and juxtaposed to create a loose triptych with an emphasis first on tone and colour, then form and scale. Greenroom required physical collaboration to roll, crumple, bend, pin and glue elements creating sculptural collages that differ from the artist’s usual work.
