Ian Dawson

Ian Dawson was Born 1969 in Darlington, Co. Durham, UK. Dawson attended the Royal College of Art and the Winchester School of Art in England. Dawson produces large-scale sculptures out of a variety of materials. Many of his works consist of colorful plastic containers that are modeled into exotic forms through heat manipulation. He strips objects of there original use and begins to position them between painting and sculpture. Some projects of his include large sheets of screen-printed paper that have been crumpled and seemingly tossed randomly into a corner. Dawson usually chooses objects that have some kind of life-like quality.
