Making Up For Lost Time
22 Aug - 18 Sep
A major installation of new paintings by Manchester artist Ian Rayer- Smith, who’s won many regional art awards will open this (TIME) at the Stockport Gallery.
Ian has only been painting for a relatively short period of time, and in that time been shortlisted and won awards.
Ian brings his show ‘Making up for lost Time’ to Stockport with his exuberant colour pallet and expressive energy. He has a raw aesthetic which creates an interesting dynamic at this scale. His paintings have a romantic and historic quality yet seem both contemporary and fresh.
This is Ian’s first major solo show at the Stockport Gallery.
Ian says “It’s such a vast space and I’m thrilled to have been invited to show my work there, there is a lot of good stuff going on in Stockport, which often gets overlooked with Manchester getting all of the attention right now. As well as my large scale paintings I will also be showing some smaller framed paintings. These smaller paintings are created alongside the larger work and they inform each other.
A special preview launch event at the Gallery on Saturday 22nd August 2015, 2-4.20pm. The exhibition continues until the 18th September.
