Artist William Ings to exhibit at The Vitrine Gallery
By ANTONY NEWTON
We don’t typically feature individual artistic talent on The Sloaney because many of the art events that we attend showcase work from a collection of artists. However, the opportunity arose when I came across some contemporary paintings from William Ings some months ago.
His style is thought provoking and encourages the viewer to examine the meaning behind each piece of work which leads to a sense of familiarity within some of the pieces. William Ings was born in 1979 in London where he currently lives and works. He graduated from Central St Martin’s school of art in 2002.
William has worked as an artist with famed architects such as Sir Norman Foster and Frank Gehry leading to a long tenure at BuroHappold Engineering. Here he was involved in high profile projects including the 2012 Olympic Stadium in London.
Consequently his work is inspired by the worlds architecture and their interface with the natural environment which you can clearly see in his unique style.
In his latest series of paintings, William revisits the environment of his childhood, examining the internal and external spaces of freedom, confinement and their relationship with the structures of adulthood.
William Ings will be exhibiting at: The Vitrine Gallery, 185 Bermondsey St, London SE1 3UW from 25th – 27th September. You can find out more about his work at www.williamings.com
