Ian Turnock

Ian Turnock produces sculpture inspired by patterns and symmetry in nature. One of his main sources of inspiration are the silhouettes formed against the sky by tree foliage at different times of the year.

The spaces between the branches and leaves are just as important. A concept known in Japanese gardens as ‘Ma’, and is akin to the silences between the notes in music. Sometimes it is the gaps I am looking for just as much as the leaves themselves.

Ian Turnock has a background in graphic design which influences his exploration of form and line. Drawings and photographs are the starting point from which he develops organic, abstract and figurative sculpture.

Ian creates intricate and detailed drawings from which the final artwork is digitally cut. The designs can be cut in stainless steel, corten, aluminium, copper, reclaimed steel and plywood. This transforms the drawn line into a tangible object.

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

If you would like further information about this artist or their available artworks please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
