Bruce Ingram

30 October - 21 November 2010


Ingram’s on-going project, 10 x 8, is made alongside a group of larger abstract works and are informed by the creative output of his studio, incorporating both painting and drawing through the process of collage.

These small works gather specific fragments of paper, clippings and marks, which have been edited-out or discarded within the production of the larger pieces. Information becomes debris within the studio, shifting between both wall and floor. Salvaged, edited and arranged, the cut out gestures, painted marks and fragments of paper become collages, acting as a diary of events that encapsulate a specific time and moment of process in the artist’s studio.

The dimensions of 10 x 8 inches determine the composition and form of the drawings, creating a standard framework for the series as a whole.

Ingram was born 1981 in Falmouth, Cornwall and lives and works in London.  He studied MA Sculpture, Royal College of Art, London, 2008 and BA Sculpture, Brighton University, Sussex 2003.  His work is included in the forthcoming exhibition ‘Virtually Real’, Blythe Gallery, Imperial College, London, opening on 24 November 2010 and he has exhibited this year in ‘This is Still Life’, Monument 2 Gallery, Chicago.  In 2009 he showed in various exhibitions including ‘Bermuda Triangle’, Spring Projects, London, ‘Creekside Open’ (selected by Mark Wallinger), APT Gallery, London, ‘Cadaver Corpse’, Golden Age, Chicago and ‘Antigone’, Purge Projects, London.
