- Artist's description
Area 52 is a monotype made with acrylic paints on paper. It is about 30cm (12") square. It is unframed and will be shipped flat in reinforced packaging. It is one of a series of such prints I have been making during lockdown. These are a new direction in my work with bold colours and strong graphic shapes. I'm still working on the series, which despite the uncertain times in which it is being made, represents a sustained period of creativity that I haven't experienced for quite a while.

- About Ian Bertram
I started life as a planner working in local government. After 30 odd (some very odd!) years redundancy led me to working for myself until a bout of illness ended that. Rather than trying to pick up the pieces again, I first started making jewellery, then started selling my photographs and digital prints. After a visit to a print studio where I saw work by Howard Hodgkin and Gillian Ayres in production I was hooked and enrolled on a printmaking course. I still take photos, but these days I focus on printmaking, but I also make collage and mixed media. Most of the work here is likely to be small studies exploring colour palettes and compositions. During the coronavirus pandemic, I've been exploring monotype prints taking my work in a new direction with bright colours and bold graphic shapes. Until further notice everything sold here will be as part of the #artistssupportpledge. See all of Ian Bertram's work
