Bruce Ingram

(b 1981United Kingdom. Lives and works in hastings )

Ingram leaves his creative process open to improvisation and spontaneity. His studio environment is a fertile ground where off-cuts of materials and studio sweepings are often physically included in the construction of his artworks. The studio debris, therefore, becomes both his material and point of reference.

“The intentional decisions I make to start an artwork always end up posing further problems to explore; the negative shape or the throwaway component shifts my focus to new outcomes.”

Ingram takes a similar approach with drawing and collage, dismantling works on paper through tearing and layering and using this as a base for mark-making and painting.
