IAN GILES

  • Work
  • Biography
Ian’s work is informed and influenced by a long and rewarding career in engineering which brings a closeness to the natural environment.
“ The constraints of procedure within engineering can develop a kind of mindset which can be challenging when undertaking artistic expression.
My experience of the natural world through engineering brings a close appreciation of the might, the delicacy and fragility of our surroundings which I seek to express in my work . By exploring different techniques of mark making I often become enthralled by process and consequently my work can be very varied but to me there is complete continuity of conceptual approach underpinning it all.”
Ian Giles is a self-taught artist who has lived in Caithness for over 40 years.
He has exhibited work throughout the Highlands as well as having commissions and works in private collections across Scotland.
