Gerrit Rietveld Academie trained sculptor Ian J. Carr will present a selection of his drawings.
My drawing is an extension of my sculptural work, what started as a tool for research has now reached its own autonomous state. I view my 2D work as constructions of line, surface, and gesture that coincide with my ongoing work as a sculptor. Ian J. Carr

On view through February 25th

Like Vermeer’s “View of Delft”,  the Hope Street space is unique in shape, location and promise, perfect for sculptor Ian J. Carr’s work.

 Ian-J-Carr-Beautiful Savage Magazine Standing the Test of Time Douglas Turner The Architecture of Tomorrow
In the autumn of 2014 Brooklyn-based Beautiful Savage Magazine asked me to interview Ian. At your last show “Broken Language” curated by Daine Coppola, you showed 2D work.  How has the role of drawing evolved in your work?

You gotta give it to Daine.  He saw those works during my residency at B.A.S. in Gowanus.  I left one card tacked to the wall, he took that and put his card there.  It was a pleasure working with him, I hope to work with him again.  He’s on point, and has a clear idea when choosing work, and what he wants to say for an exhibition.

As of late the drawings have become more autonomous, they’re works in themselves.  I’m proud of that.  I can make a drawing with no reference or connection to my sculptural work.  I feel like that’s a success.
