Ivan Smith

I am a visual artist with a socially engaged practice and have worked internationally and throughout the UK for 30 years, as a solo artist, participant in, and initiator of residency projects.

The work produced earlier in my career with the artist-led visual arts group Fine Rats International is crucial in respect to my ongoing concerns for the site-specific. Exploring space whether in the urban or rural landscapes or fixed within the walls of interior spaces the investigation centre’s around the space and the audience.

Direct action between artwork and audience drives a clear desire to confront contemporary issues, social order and the transparent borders within which societies exist.
