CONCEPT OF ARTWORK
Ian has taken inspiration from his main signature works of controlled dynamic pouring of paint, but here his unique lines suggest the individuality of tiger stripes. The stripes are rendered in bright colourful, dynamic colours to emphasise its majestic unique beauty, contrasted against the black areas of absence and loss.
