Ivan Black

BORN:
1972

LIVES:
Pembrokeshire, South Wales

EARLY LIFE:
Ivans interest in sculpture began at a young age and his fascination with wire as a medium. His early two dimensional efforts soon evolved into three dimensional figures. He added movement to his work and the figurative subjects gradually gave way to geometrical forms.

EDUCATION:
Middlesex University London in 1991

CAREER:
He has recently completed and installed a 25 foot kinetic piece in the entrance of the Treatment Centre and Addenbrooke`s hospital in Cambridge. Last year he performed a weeks residency at Le Rondin School where he created a tree of life for the sensory garden with the assistance of the students.

MEDIUMS USED IN WORK:
Whilst working primarily in wire, he now uses a variety of materials to give form and ballast to his work. Including aluminium

SUBJECTS OF WORK:
Ivan takes inspiration for his geometry from iconic natural forms, the DNA helix, the movement of the celestial bodies through space, sound and light waves and the golden spiral that forms the template for the growth of plants. The movements of his sculptures mimic those of these dynamic geometries, imbuing them with a uniquely organic motion.
