Dimension Gallery presents Ian Ingram: "Five Skin Ten Skin" opening reception
Ian Ingram has stood in front of a magnifying mirror for more than 20 years. He makes enormous self-portraits with gobsmacking mastery of charcoal and oil paint. His aim has consistently been to focus the flame of self-observation and render what is seen and what happens while seeing. The work in this collection shows the quicksilver wiggle of a consciousness that refuses to be pinned down, defined, or contained. The work in this show is one self-portrait, pulled apart, dissected into six separate pieces.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 5, 2019.
