Ian Mood

May 23, 2011


Landscape can be one of the most conservative of genres, but in the hands of a sensitive, questing artist it can become one of the most radical.

Ian Mood is an artist who is drawn towards the shifting vastness in which we live and have our being; an arena of powerful agencies that every so often remind us of their unpredictability and awesome might.

In an age that seems intent upon commodifying the natural world into near non-existence, Mood offers a salutary reminder of the protean energies of the natural world. In his paintings, fluid traces of paint swirl, gather and disperse, like the reflections on the surface of a disturbed pool, to create a perfect equivalence for the dance of light and colour that characterises our experience of the northern landscape. (Text by Michael Howard, M.A., F.R.S.A.)
