|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.
