Piccadilly late afternoon (Room 1109) - Ian Norris
120 x 120 cms Original Oil on canvas - framed - Ian Norris. From a series of paintings over looking Piccadilly gardens, this stunning original oil on canvas from Ian Norris challenges and pushes boundaries. From two seperate rooms Ian has created a series of paintings of Manchester and this case Room 1109.
‘Ian relies on his own intuitive responses to the world around him, whether that response be to a landscape, a coastline, a cityscape or indeed recently, the interior of his studio. Whatever the subject, although perhaps stimulus would perhaps be more appropriate, the physical manifestation of the visual experience through the act of painting is, for Ian, the means of transmitting and sharing the same feeling and experience with the viewer. As a result, the contrast between the internalisation of a once private memory and the external public rendering of its emotional response is at the heart of Ian’s challenge and the honesty of its portrayal underscores his artistic integrity.
Ian's works hang across the world and he is very much seen as one of the most important painters currently working in the North of England.
