About Artist:

English artist Ian Davenport is celebrated for his simple abstract paintings, which assemble vertical lines in a rich variety of colours.

Ian Davenport's Poured Lines and Puddle Paintings are characterised by their vibrancy and simplicity. They demonstrate the artist's acute understanding of colour theory and commitment to evolving his iconic repeat process.

Davenport pours glossy acrylic paint from the top of his tilted canvas, he constructs sequences of hues that present contrasting and complementary results. In the Puddle Painting series, the artist allows the paint to form rich pools of a marbled quality at the bottom of the canvas. This alludes to a recurring tension in Davenport's work: the presence of both control and chance. By implementing this paradox, Davenport introduces a natural sense of visual rhythm into each piece.
