Ian Gold’s abstract paintings echo the rhythm and repetition of his process. Gold’s thick layering of rich colour creates depth and texture within his work, often revealing text or figures upon closer inspection. Gold often draws inspiration from subjects close to his heart, including the St Kilda Saints. Ian Gold (born 1988) has been attending the Arts Project studio since 2008. He has been included in numerous group exhibitions including ‘Supermarket’, Craft, Melbourne; ‘Down Here, Down Under’, Galerie Atelier Herenplaats, Rotterdam; and has been featured in each Annual Gala at Arts Project Australia since 2008. He received an honourable mention in the 2014 Belle Arti Prize and his held in private collections throughout Australia.
