When I came across the work of Ian Palmer I was instantly drawn to his brush strokes, composition, and color choices. Ian is a Graphic Design turned artist and being a Graphic Designer myself I too get the urge to express through other mediums. His abstraction we what I really liked. Maybe it was because I could see these pieces in the interiors that I most relate to, that being mid century. I like when he is more liberal and heavy handed the the layering of paint. The thickness and layers create depth of color. The Rising, the first painting is my favorite.
