• Image of Bridge I by Ian Chamberlain

Ian Chamberlain is a Bristol based artist whose work takes influence from manmade structures. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, including London, Hong Kong, New York, Barcelona and Berlin. He is also a Senior Lecturer at the University of the West of England, Bristol, where he teaches onto the M.A Printmaking Course and BA (Hons) Drawing and print course.

Chamberlain’s work aims to reinterpret these manmade objects as monuments placed within the landscape. These structures in turn then become monuments of their time. The prints serve as a visual historical document and record. The Maunsell sea fort prints in particular are recording a subject that is rusting away and without considerable restoration will eventually fall back into the Thames estuary.
